Who is MDE US?

Music Declares Emergency (MDE) is a collective of music industry professionals, artists and organizations that provide programs that change the practices of the music industry to reduce the carbon footprint. We also collaborate with grassroots climate partners to mitigate people’s individual actions that contribute to climate change through messaging, actions and our declaration.

MDE helps guide the music industry’s response to the global climate and ecological emergency crisis. Together, we have collected over 6,000 signatures from across the music industry to date, in support of a declaration that calls for an immediate governmental response to protect our planet and all life on earth.

What Artists have signed the Declaration?

Declarers worldwide include Annie Lennox, Arcade Fire, Billie Eilish, Bon Iver, Chicano Batman, Major Lazer, Bootsy Collins, The 1975, Fantastic Negrito, Juanes, Massive Attack, Machel Montano, Pretenders, Tegan and Sara, Tom Morello, KT Tunstall, Brian Eno, Tycho, and Tom Odell.
