What is Fridays For Future?
The hashtags #FridaysForFuture and #Climatestrike spread and many students and adults began to protest outside of their parliaments and local city halls all over the world. This has also inspired the Belgium Thursday school strikes.
How have we progressed?
On Friday 20 September 2019, the world witnessed the biggest environmental protest the world has ever seen. In 185 countries, millions of children didn’t turn up to school. Instead they took to the streets to support young climate strikers and demand an end to the age of fossil fuels.
Young people have woken up much of the world with their powerful Fridays for Future school strikes for the climate. Now, millions of adults are joining in a huge wave of that will kickstart renewed action all over the world.
“The climate crisis has already been solved. We already have all the facts and solutions. All we have to do is to wake up and change.” – Greta Thunberg
