Climate Emergency Voices

“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 words. A song, a poem, a story. Voices for a Climate Emergency. Words 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 writers, composers and musicians we then turn these words into songs and poems to be passed on to adult choirs and performers: parents, teachers – anyone who wants to share them!


So far, we have delivered workshops to Swainswick CofE Primary School in Bath – and we are looking for other schools in the Bath area to take part.


Thanks to a grant from the Bath & West Community Energy Fund we are able to offer these workshops free of charge to participating schools.


Participant reactions

Voices for a Climate Emergency follows the same model as our 2014-17 Unsung project.


“Kilter have this vast body of knowledge surrounding the environment, ecologies and sustainable living, alongside the requisite theatre making skills to turn this knowledge into something entertaining, heart warming and provocative. To boot they have a natural way of imparting their knowledge and skills to younger people.” (Kate Cross, Director of the egg)


“My class loved Unsung. It was well structured, totally inclusive and thoroughly enjoyable. We cannot wait to hear our anthem sung!!” (Lucy Willis, Teacher)
