My Planet My Voice

Do you want to raise awareness of an environmental issue to create change?

My Planet My Voice is a series of workshops, events and projects that will enable people to explore ways they can express their environmental concerns to policy makers and inspire others to take action. The workshops have been made possible due to a successful bid to the Lush Community Fund.

The project is supporting people to use song, poetry, art, traditional letter writing, video and other creative means to help us to express how we feel about the challenges we and our planet face – and to call for change.

During lockdown we invited people to take photos and you can see the results on Your Planet Your Photo. You can add your photo from lockdown by emailing us info@planetaware.co.uk.

Shortly before Christmas we ran a two-part song-writing workshop – have a listen to the songs from the My Planet My Voice workshops.

You can get involved in My Planet My Voice through our Ocean Challenge which runs through the summer and capture your experience through journal writing.

We can all make positive changes in our life to use less of the Earth’s precious resources. But, for the long-term future of our planet, change is needed at a higher level – through governments and organisations. Sharing your experiences of the natural world and what it means to you – is a powerful way to help create change.

Use our letter writing guide to tell someone about your environmental concern.

Please do get in touch if you are interested in hosting a My Planet My Voice event as we would love to hear from anyone who is keen to add their creativity to the project.
