Get involved

What can you do for the planet?

If you're a kid, you can create Earth Speakr messages and invite your friends to make more.

If you're a grown up, explore the Earth Speakr messages, create groups of messages – so-called Loud Speakrs – and share with others to amplify the topics that you find most relevant. Take your Loud Speakrs with you to demonstrate how you act in response to kids' concerns.

If you're an institution or part of a network, you can host an event and encourage kids to participate. Toolkits available on the website guide you in co-creating engaging activities for kids to explore the artwork and in bringing Earth Speakr into your existing programming.

If you work in politics, you can get involved by listening to what future constituents have to say and considering how you can best respond to the topics they raise. Olafur Eliasson hopes you will be inspired to bring Earth Speakr messages to the table to make kids feel met and heard.

Are you ready to listen to the future?

To get involved, please download the app and follow the tutorial. Take a look at the Earth Speakr toolkits to find ideas that fit within your existing programming and activities.

Earth Speakr toolkits

Studio Olafur Eliasson has collaborated with leading institutions and experts in creating toolkits to inspire your engagement with Earth Speakr in various settings. Each toolkit is designed to help in the process of discovering the artwork – from exploring existing messages to empowering kids to create new messages.

Earth Speakr toolkits invite kids to imagine, to create, to share, and to get inspired through the process of discovery. Toolkits can be combined and applied as suitable in institutions and at home with friends and family alike.

We welcome your creative interpretations of Earth Speakr toolkits and look forward to hearing about your events!
