Climate Emergency Songs
“Our house is on fire! Why aren’t you panicking?”
Thus began 16-year old Greta Thunberg in her address to the World Economic Forum, in January 2019.
“World Governments have declared a Climate Emergency and yet nobody is treating it like an emergency!”
We believe there is an emergency and the people it affects most are our children. We believe nobody is too small to make a difference so we are helping young people, wherever they are, to compose their thoughts in song. Songs for a Climate Emergency. Songs that get right to the heart of those in power. For children, those in power are everyone but themselves.
In two or three successive workshops, our experienced workshop facilitators help groups of children to articulate their concerns and simple ideas to address the climate emergency. Working with professional composers and musicians we then set these words as choral harmonies to be passed on to adult choirs: parents, teachers – anyone who will sing them!
This song-writing model follows the same vein as our 2014-17 Unsung project.
