Music Declares Emergency is the UK-based campaign aiming to help the music industry play a part in tackling the climate emergency. Now it has announced plans for a one-day conference in London on 17 October,
Climate Blowout, with industry executives and artists “imagining a greener music industry”. The opening address will come from Mike Smith, global president of Downtown Music, and also a trustee of Earth Percent.
That’s the organisation launched earlier this year to encourage artists and music companies to commit a small percentage of their revenues to a fund that will support climate projects. Further panelists will be announced soon, and there will be performances in the evening from a range of artists too.
