With Beggars as a founding partner, today sees the launch of Murmur, a new initiative that will unite the art and music sectors to raise funds and advocate for solutions to climate change. Its mission is to fund initiatives to help our industries to decarbonise; to finance transformative climate work; and to empower artists’ voices to create major societal change.

Partners commit to measure and reduce their own emissions in line with climate science and to contribute funds to Murmur to finance transformative climate action. Murmur has already raised over £1 million in pledges from the visual art and music worlds to help lead and drive change – and this is just the beginning.
