September 20 Melbourne Strike for Climate
To everyone who cares about a safe climate future, this is your invitation to join the Global #ClimateStrike on September 20 - people around the world standing up to confront the climate crisis when our politicians won’t.
The School Strikers are done with asking politely for action. And now's the time for us to step up and support them.
Our continent is already on the frontlines of the climate crisis. Prolonged drought. Flash flooding. Catastrophic bushfires, severe cyclones and heatwaves. But just at the time when we need to ramp up climate solutions, we have elected a Government that wants to open the floodgates to new coal, oil and gas projects that put all of us at risk.
We’ll strike in solidarity for everyone who’s already being hurt by the climate crisis and everyone who will be impacted if we don’t act now: workers, First Nations communities, young people, mining communities and more.
So, on September 20, three days before the UN Emergency Climate Summit, school students are inviting everyone to join us for our biggest ever global #ClimateStrike.
By taking time off school and work together around the world, we’ll show our politicians that people everywhere want climate justice and we’re not going away until we get it.
Everyone is invited, everyone is needed.
Earlier this year, 1.6 million of us went on strike around the world. On September 20, we’re going to take our movement to the next level. No matter who you are, take the day off and invite your friends, workmates and families to join us.
