Earth Speakr
Digital artwork, that invites kids to speak up for the planet and adults to listen up to them.
Earth Speakr is an artwork. It invites kids to speak up for the planet and adults to listen up to what they have to say. Earth Speakr is a safe place for kids to voice their ideas and concerns about the wellbeing of our planet. Earth Speakr speaks your language – it also speaks the 24 official languages of the European Union and can be accessed throughout the world. Some aspects of the artwork are just for kids, aged 7–17. If you're a kid, you can use the Earth Speakr app to record your ideas about the wellbeing of our planet. Adults are also invited to participate by listening to the messages, sharing these with others, and creating augmented reality Loud Speakrs to demonstrate with and amplify the powerful messages kids have to share.
