Join the Fridays for Future week of climate action 20th- 27th September. Now it’s time for adults to join the strike.

Students and young people around the world have been walking out of school every Friday to demand urgent action on climate change – now they need the adults to join them.

In September the Fridays For Future climate strike movement is organising its biggest actions yet. After two successful global climate strikes – involving over 1.8 million school children around the world – governments are starting to listen but still failing to take serious action on the climate crisis.

School strikers are organising a big week of climate action, starting with a general strike on Friday 20th September. It is time for adults to step up to the mark and join their children in the call to action.

Save the date!

General strike, Friday 20 September

The school strikers have led the way but now they are asking for everyone to join in and demand climate justice.

Join the general strike marches in Edinburgh and Glasgow on 20th September. (More locations being added)

Everyone is welcome: bring your best banners, all your pals and your dog! 

Organise your workplace

Speak to your colleagues or union branch about stopping work on 20th September and supporting the climate strike.

From a walk out at lunch time, taking annual leave to join the marches or putting a motion to your union, the Global Climate Strike website has ideas and resources for taking action in your workplace.
