Climate change requires rapid and urgent action across all sectors of society to address the current climate and ecological emergency if we are to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees. In response, The BRIT School has joined artists, music industry professionals and organisations in the UK music industry to declare a climate and ecological emergency as part of Music Declares. Given the BRIT School’s leading position as a Performing Arts and Technology School, environmental sustainability is a major opportunity for the School to demonstrate climate leadership and values; define good environmental practice, and benefit from an opportunity to positively and meaningfully engage with our students.
The BRIT School is joining the growing community of leaders committed to taking bold, strategic action on climate change aligned to the Paris Agreement, the international framework for limiting global warming to no more than 2°C. We are committed to creating and fostering a sustainable ethos – demonstrating and amplifying good practice and inspiring our students and the wider community to action.
