The SAY Award is proud to support Music Declares Emergency as Charity Partner for 2020’s campaign.
Music Declares Emergency is an independent group created by music business executives and artists concerned at the lack of a cohesive, industry wide response to the climate emergency. In July of 2019 it organised an industry wide declaration of Climate and Ecological Emergency signed by leading artists and businesses within the UK music industry, calling for net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and pledging industry action on environmental sustainability. The declaration is now signed by 3000 individuals and organisations working in the music industry.
Music Declares Emergency believes that the music community can drive forward public understanding and pressure the government to take immediate action on climate and biodiversity loss.
The SAY Award commits to running 2020’s campaign in the most environmentally responsible way possible. With the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) due to be held in Glasgow in 2021, The SAY Award looks forward to providing Music Declares Emergency with a platform to educate the music industry on how to work towards becoming more ecologically sustainable and regenerative.
Talking about the new partnership, Music Declares Emergency said, "We are honoured to have been chosen by The SAY Award as their charity partner for this year. As the climate emergency becomes ever more immediate, the continued response of the UK music industry has been vital in placing action on the agenda. The support of such an incredible and important organisation is vital in spreading our message and connecting the music community and inspiring them to drive change. Thank you SAY and tell everyone - there is #NoMusicOnADeadPlanet."
