Tell Your Story
It’s important to share your reasons why #ClimateStrike matters to you and invite your community to join you.
Share a Selfie
Millions of people across the world are going to be striking for climate in September, all with different experiences of the climate crisis. Take a photo or record a quick video of yourself holding a sign/ explaining why you’re going to take part and organise with them.
Share it on your Instagram or Facebook story, or tweet it out. Be sure to use the hashtag #climatestrike. Your reasons for joining the global climate strike might resonate with someone unexpected and encourage them to join too. Read more here.
Invite your friends and family
Send them an email, invite them to the RVSP page for your local event, call them, text them, send them an Instagram video. Whichever way you can, it’s important for you to reach out to those around you.
Most Global Climate Strike events are an open invitation to anyone who wants to join. Everyone can have a role to play. Your brother could help make food for people, your best friend could help take photos, a total stranger may be up for organising a banner-making session etc.
It’s also important as the week of 20 September gets closer to re-invite people! Reminders are crucial.
Amplify #ClimateStrike stories from around the world
Students have been striking for months now, with the March 15 and May 24 school strikes being the largest climate mobilisations worldwide, EVER.
