The song, and accompanying animated video, aim to communicate groundbreaking ecosystem science and economics research in an accessible and inspiring way. It responds to work from Environmental Change Institute researchers Kate Raworth and Professor Yadvindher Malhi, exploring themes of planetary health, unsustainable economic growth, and undervalued parts of the economy, such as parenting.
From 1 – 2 project collaborators will live chat online discussing the role of the arts to communicate environmental research. Follow the hashtag #ThriveNotGrow or visit Environmental Change Institute to join the conversation.
The project was commissioned by Tandem Collective, produced and released by Upcycled Sounds Records, and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
The song and animation will be released on November 28th through all major digital platforms.
