Earth Speakr, 2020


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.

The artwork uses augmented reality and includes a free app and an interactive website (, available in 25 languages and accessible worldwide. Earth Speakr was started by Olafur Eliasson on the occasion of the German Presidency of the Council of the EU 2020. It is funded by the Federal Foreign Office and realised in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut. The artwork will take shape until December 2020 with kids’ input and ideas.

Kids can use the Earth Speakr app to record their 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.
