Going on climate strike means people everywhere walking out of their homes, their offices, their farms, and their factories to demand action on the climate crisis.
It’ll take everyone to disrupt business as usual and secure a better future. We can all take part — whatever our circumstances — by refusing to accept the status quo.
Already, millions of people are hurting because of climate change. If we don’t act now to transition fairly and swiftly away from fossil fuels to 100% renewable energy access for all, the injustice of the climate crisis will only get worse.
We must act now.
20-27 September 2019
20-27 September 2019, a record 7.6 million people took to the streets to strike for climate action in the biggest climate mobilisation in history. 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 strikes showed that we have the people power we need to create a just world and end the era of fossil fuels.
