Ready to declare?
Fantastic! We welcome you to our community of declarers.
If you’re ready to declare follow the steps below…
- Step one: Why are you declaring?
Create a pledge statement to describe why you’re declaring and how you’ll take action. This could be very short or very detailed, it’s up to you but you’ll need a punchy version to share on your profile here and on social media. See our pathways to action for inspiration.
- Step two: Complete the Declaration form
Join our public lists of declarers, as an individual or an organisation. You’ll be able to come back and edit your profile at any time, using the login details created as you declare. Declare now
- Step three: Use our kitemark
Put the CDE kitemark on your websites, emails and print materials. Download the kitemark, CDE font and colour palette.
- Step four: Announce your declaration
Share your pledge statement on your website, in a press release and on social media. Tag us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using #CultureTakesAction.
- Step five: Ramp up the action
If not done at step one, make a plan of increased action, and start to carry it out. See suggested pathways to action, to suit your practice, mission or community needs.
- Step six: Get more involved with our community
You could set up a local Culture Declares hub, or join one of our Working Groups. Take part in our actions and events. Or sign up for our newsletter.
