In the last two years, the school strike movement has swept across the globe, forcing the climate crisis onto the world agenda like never before.

From Germany to Japan, Sweden to Brazil, the UK to Uganda, millions of school students have taken to the streets to stand up for their futures and demand urgent climate justice. This time last year, an unprecedented 4 million people took part in their call for the first ever global general strike for climate action.

School students worldwide are proving that they are not only powerful, but informed and organised. Here in the UK, their demands for decarbonisation by 2030 through a radical Green New Deal have gained huge momentum, forcing politicians to cling to their climate policies during the recent General Election.

But where next for this unprecedented and unbelievable movement?

Join us on 30 April at 8.05pm to hear from the incredible Macsen Brown, school strike activist and organiser with the UK School Climate Network (UKSCN), on the all important question: Where next for the school strikes?


Macsen Brown is a sixth form student and school strike organiser with UK School Climate Network (UKSCN), and member of the Young Greens based in London. He tweets as @macsenllew.
