Nature’s Voice
Jonathan Darbourne director
Peter Fiennes speaker
Farhana Yamin speaker
Dan Samsa sound producer 


Nature’s Voice – which includes members of the Temple Singers – will perform a diverse programme of song inspired by nature, interwoven with impassioned commentary from leading environmental speakers.  Forget the politics, missed targets and dropped policy agendas around the critical issue of climate change and allow music to do what it does best and remind us all why we need to sit up, listen and act.

“The world is no longer divided between those countries that have the obligation, and the rest. Everybody has the opportunity to present their own plans to grapple with climate change.” – James Cameron, advisor to the project
