School Strike for Climate Action > Friday 12th April

Young people have been taking action:
Futures Forum: School Strike for Climate Action > "it is important we listen – and take action"
Futures Forum: School Strike for Climate Action UK > "young people are being left to deal with the fallout of our fossil fuel addiction"

And they will be doing so again this Friday: 

Next UK youth strike 12 April

Find your local strike here. Adults are invited to come along to show support - do read this guide produced by the school strike organisers about how adults can best support them on the day and in other ways.

The youth strikers in the UK have looked across the Atlantic, where the Sunrise Movement, led by young adults, has propelled the Green New Deal into a serious political bid to tackle the climate emergency. Expect to hear more about young people supporting a Green New Deal for the UK.

Sir David Attenborough gave a speech last night that was both powerful and empowering. He breaks down why he values Our Planet and why we all need to act to take on saving this world. Honestly, can you imagine not loving him?

  • Liz Straw The raw anger in this video is fully justified and I love the line, We're Not Going Anywhere. Good! I'm ashamed that my generation has failed your generation. Keep Striking - local and national government MUST listen to you.
