Join the Global Climate Strike, Sept. 20-27

On September 20-27, people around the world will be demonstrating, protesting, and engaging in school and work strikes to demand government action on climate change. 

The climate crisis is already impacting life around the world, causing heat waves, drought, forest fires, flooding, and massive storms such as Hurricane Dorian, devastating the Bahamas with winds at landfall as high as those ever recorded for an Atlantic storm. 

This strike builds on a series of previous strikes in 2018 and 2019, initiated by a 15-year-old Swedish girl, Greta Thunberg.  Thunberg has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and her 10 minute Ted Talk has inspired millions, and is a great resource for classroom teaching.

More information about the Global Strike can be found on Daily Kos and FacebookBill McKibben calls for people, particularly young people, to voice their demands for immediate action.

There is an on-line petition demanding action.

Find locations of strikes planned in your areaways to participate, and ways to promote participation.

The Alliance for Climate Education (ACE) has created an excellent resource site for teachers to help them support their students in participation in the Global Strike. This includes having students create and share graphics from the Justseeds Collaboration using the Climate Strike Art Kit.
