Climate Change Songs

This collection of songs is a musical response to the urgent issue of climate change. The songs – about the beauty of our planet and what we can do to protect it – can be sung in choirs and in the MFL classroom as well as on climate change events and demonstrations (Fridays for future). Scores, lyrics, and additional tips for teachers are available from schwarzmartina@hotmail.com.

Martina continues to lead workshops in schools and other settings. Please get in touch if you would like more information.

While several of these songs are available in English, the majority were originally composed in German for the German language classroom:

Klimaschutz statt Klimaschmutz! (Protect the planet, don’t pollute it!)

Mensch! (about sustainable travel)

Wiederverwerten! (recycling)

Hilfe! (a cry for help)

Unsere Umwelt, unsere Welt! (our environment is our world)

Rodet nicht die Wälder! (Don’t cut down the trees!)
* educational resources for this song will be available on the website of the Goethe-Institute London soon.
