The Australian Youth Climate Coalition stands in solidarity with the incredible young people who are organising the September 20 Global #ClimateStrike here in Australia. Their demands to leave fossil fuels in the ground, supercharge the transition to 100% renewable energy and ensure a just transition for workers reflect the bold and urgent change that our generation deserves, and it’s time for our political leaders to listen.

AYCC is one of dozens of climate, environment and workers’ rights organisations elevating the work of School Strike 4 Climate, and we are proud to be working alongside people from all walks of life in the fight for climate justice.

While we will always stand with young people speaking up for climate action, the AYCC is not coordinating the September 20 events, and we would encourage supporters and media to reach out to representatives of the School Strike 4 Climate, a student-led network whose website has all the information about the strikes and how people can get involved.
