How can we begin to talk about what is happening to the world? We are facing a global emergency. Temperatures are rising.

Mass species extinction has begun. The time for denial is over. It is time to act.

Letters to the Earth is the beginning of a new story. It is an invitation to act and an opportunity to extend the invitation. These letters are the result of a call out from Culture Declares Emergency to the public to write a response to climate and ecological emergency.

They are letters from all of us: parents and children; politicians and poets; actors and activists; songwriters and scientists. They are letters of Love, Loss Hope and Action to a planet in crisis. Includes contributions from activist Yoko Ono, poet Kate Tempest, actor Mark Rylance, author Laline Paull, illustrator of The Lost Words Jackie Morris, novelist Anna Hope, environmental writer Jay Griffiths and Green Party MP Caroline Lucas.
