“Many artists have written about their love of nature or used their platforms to support a worthy cause. Individual actions are great, but there is strength and strategy in coming together.

The Environmental Music Prize will bolster our work greening the music industry by attracting new artists and empowering them to use their cultural influence to speak up and sing out on climate.

We are witnessing a wave of environmentalism. This exciting initiative will add more songs to the soundtrack and provide opportunities for artists to speak with a coordinated voice for maximum impact.”

“We have all the science and solutions we need, and a vast majority of the Australian people want action on the climate emergency.

What matters now is putting the pressure on the politicians and the business leaders to act and we cannot underestimate the power of great songs to do just that.

Since the very first concert for Greenpeace in 1970, music has been a huge part of who we are, so we are thrilled to see the launch of The Environmental Music Prize and delighted that more talented artists will be lending their voice and influence to shift Australia towards a better future.”

– David Ritter, CEO of Greenpeace Australia
