The Chapter 4 Group will be supporting the amazing project Earth Speakr, which will be running throughout the European Union from July to December 2020. Earth Speakr is a new interactive artwork by artist Olafur Eliasson that amplifies kids’ views on the future wellbeing of the planet. The artwork invites adults and today’s decision-makers, change-makers, and global leaders to listen up to what kids have to say. Earth Speakr uses augmented reality and includes a free app and an interactive website available in the 24 official languages of the European Union and can be accessed worldwide. Eliasson created the artwork on the occasion of the German Presidency of the Council of the EU 2020.
From 1 July 2020, kids’ messages will appear on Earth Speakr’s virtual map, and Loud Speakrs can be viewed in AR at prominent locations across the EU. To find out more and to participate in creating the artwork, download the Earth Speakr app from Google Play or App Store, visit the website at (https://earthspeakr.art), and join the discussion @earthspeakr on social media.
