FAQ: Young people have woken up much of the world with their powerful Fridays for Future school strikes for the climate. As we deal with devastating climate breakdown and hurtle towards dangerous tipping points, young people are calling on millions of us across the planet to disrupt business as usual by joining the global climate strikes on September 20, just ahead of a UN emergency climate summit, and again on September 27. Together, we will sound the alarm and show our politicians that business as usual is no longer an option. The climate crisis won’t wait, so neither will we.
Australia: We are in the thick of the climate crisis. Yet we just elected a Government that wants to open the floodgates to new coal, oil and gas projects that put all of us at risk. We are already hurting from the impacts of climate change. If we don’t act now to transition fairly and swiftly away from coal, oil & gas to 100% renewable energy for all, this will only get worse. But it’s going to take all of us working together to succeed. Join us on September 20 – three days out from the UN’s Emergency Climate Summit — by taking the day off school, uni or work to show our politicians that we’re serious about climate action. (source)
