A Climate & Ecological Emergency

On April 3rd 2019, we are joining Arts and Cultural Organisations across the country to declare a Climate & Ecological Emergency


We have made the following declaration:

We, Doorstep Arts declare a Climate and Ecological Emergency
We pledge to work with and support our community and local government in tackling this Emergency, and we call on others to do the same.

These are our intentions:

1. We will tell the Truth

We will communicate with citizens and support them to discover the truth about the Emergency and the changes that are needed.

2. We will take Action

We will actively work to imagine and model ways that our organisation can regenerate the planet’s resources through environmental education with all the children and young people we work with in Torbay & beyond.

3. We are committed to Justice

We will do what is possible to enable dialogue and expression amidst our communities about how the Emergency will affect them and the changes that are needed.

We will support demands for more democracy within our civic institutions and government supporting and amplifying the voices of the young people we work with.


We believe that all truth-telling, action and democratic work must be underpinned by a commitment to justice based on intersectional principles, led by and for marginalised people.

Declaration ends.

Our Summer Term promises to explore our Environment, recycling and how we can make a difference – even if it is tiny difference by tiny hands!
