From Jakarta to New York, Karachi to Amman, Berlin to Kampala, Istanbul to Québec, Guadalajara to Asunción, in big cities and small villages, millions of people joined hands and raised their voices in defense of the climate. The Global Climate Strike shows that we have the people power we need to create a just world and end the era of fossil fuels.

It’ll take everyone to secure a better future and avert the worst of the climate crisis. What happens next is up to us. No matter where you live, there’s a way to take action.

Media Coverage

We decide the ending to this story

20 year old climate justice activist and Juliana v United States plaintiff Vic Barrett reflects on how their identities inform their activism, and why it’s up to all of us to fight back against the climate crisis.

Europe on strike for climate justice

In Europe, the Global Climate Strike brought over 4 million people, in 38 countries, to the streets. We followed the youth strikers’ call to action, angry, defiant, but also hopeful. It was beautiful. And it’s a new beginning.
