School students from cities and towns across Australia will be joining together to strike for the Climate on Septemeber 20.
Most of us have never met in person before but are united by our concern about our planet.
We are striking from school to tell our politicians to take our futures seriously and treat climate change for what it is - a crisis.
Politicians can show us that they care by takingurgent action to meet our demands:
Climate change is one of the biggest problems facing the world and it isn’t being addressed quickly enough.
In Australia, education is viewed as immensely important, and a key way to make a difference in the world.
But simply going to school isn’t doing anything about climate change. And it doesn’t seem that our politicians are doing anything, or at least not enough, about climate change either.
So, as our contribution to the changes we want to see, we are striking from school. We are temporarily sacrificing our education in order to save our futures from climate wrecking projects like the Adani coal mine.
