Student Strike for Climate – September 20 Is the Time for All to Join

On March 15, 2019 one-and-a-half million students from 2,233 cities and towns in 128 countries on all seven continents around the world participated in a Student Strike for Climate.

Now student strikers are asking everyone to join them starting on September 20, 2019.

This is their invitation:

Starting on Friday, September 20, we will kickstart a week of climate action with a worldwide strike for the climate. We’re asking adults to step up alongside us. There are many different plans under way in different parts of the world for adults to join together and step up and out of your comfort zone for our climate. Let’s all join together, with your neighbors, co-workers, friends, family and go out on to the streets to make your voices heard and make this a turning point in our history.
