Global Climate Strike - September 20-27

As world leaders prepare to gather in New York for the UN Climate Action Summit, millions of children and students across Canada and around the world will be hitting the streets again on Friday  to demand action on the climate crisis from all levels of government and society. They are calling on people of all ages to join them in a week of Global Climate Action from September 20–27.

Climate Strike groups across Canada are kicking off the week with a march and "die-in" protest on Friday, September 20:

The culmination of Global Climate Week will be another series of climate strikes across Canada on Friday, September 27. Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg, whose actions inspired the global Fridays for Future climate strike movement, will be marching with climate strikers in Montréal.

Check Global Climate Strike for a Climate Strike in your town or city. GoodWork has compiled a good list of Global Climate Strike links and resources.

In between, there are a myriad of climate events and actions planned, some of which are listed in the Upcoming Events section of this email. Check out the Edmonton Climate Strike page for a schedule of events in Edmonton. The Calgary Climate Hub has a list of happenings in Calgary.  Read more about Global Climate Strike - September 20-27
