Global Climate Strike

Friday, September 20, 2019 - 00:00

Millions of school strikers have shown us they’re serious about climate action. Adults, will you join our youth?

School strikers are calling on everyone: young people, parents, workers, and all concerned citizens to join massive climate strikes and a week of actions starting on September 20.

People all over the world will use their power to stop “business as usual” in the face of the climate emergency. We will join young people in the streets to demand an end to the age of fossil fuels and emergency action to avoid climate breakdown.

Find out more information on the strikes here, including where you can join a strike near you.
