The Global Climate Strike: Our Future is on the line!

The Global Climate Strike is taking place throughout the world on Friday, September 15th through Sunday, September 17th in 2023. This year's theme is focused on ending fossil fuels because it is destroying our ability to live safely on this planet. This strike is important because it serves as a catalyst for change, raising awareness, consciousness, mobilizing youth, and pressuring governments, and institutions to take meaningful action on climate change, which is one of the most critical challenges facing humanity today. Look around you, if there is not an earthquake, or a fire, there is a flood; all of this leads to poor air quality as well, which is bad for our lungs and overall health.

The Global Climate Strike What is it?

The Global Climate Strike is a global movement of students, workers, and activists who are taking to the streets to demand urgent action on the climate crisis that surrounds us all. The strikes are organized by Fridays for Future, a youth-led movement that was started by Greta Thunberg in 2018. This move is about consciousness, awakening the world to what is really happening though if they open their eyes, they can clearly see what is happening.

Fridays for Future

Fridays for Future (FFF) is an international movement, it is a youth-led organization whose goal is to inspire people to wake up and act against this climate crisis that is among us and continues to get worse day by day. Friday for Future and other activists continuously call for governments throughout the world to take more ambitious steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, transition to renewable energy sources, and protect the environment right now. Time is ticking as we hear in the news earthquakes, fire and floods are on the rise and will only get worse if something is not done.

The FFF movement has played a significant role in raising global awareness about climate change and has put pressure on governments and policymakers to take more substantial actions to address this pressing issue. As we continuously see, enough is not being done to conquer the climate crisis therefore we must not let up on the pressure to get the change we need to see moving forward.
