Culture Declares Emergency

We declare a Climate and Ecological Emergency.

These are our intentions.

1. We will tell the Truth

We will communicate with citizens and support them to discover the truth about the Emergency and the changes that are needed.


2. We will take Action

We pledge to work towards reducing our emissions to net zero by 2025. We will challenge policies and actions of local and national governments and their agencies, where we interact with them, that do not help to reduce emissions or consumption levels. We will actively work to imagine and model ways that our organisation can regenerate the planet’s resources.


3. We are committed to Justice

We will do what is possible to enable dialogue and expression amidst our communities about how the Emergency will affect them and the changes that are needed. We will support demands for more democracy within our civic institutions and government. We believe that all truth-telling, action and democratic work must be underpinned by a commitment to justice based on intersectional principles, led by and for marginalised people.
