About Fridays For Future
The climate crisis is the most important issue of our time. It is an existential threat that we must solve as soon as possible if we want to guarantee the younger generations a future.
Fridays For Future is an international youth-led movement that began in August 2018, after 15 year old Greta Thunberg sat in front of the Swedish parliament every school day for three weeks to protest against the lack of action on the climate crisis. Since then, millions of people have participated in Fridays For Future strikes around the world.
We strike every Friday to demand that people in power:
- Keep the global temperature rise below 1.5C compared to pre-industrial levels
- Follow the Paris Agreement and ensure climate justice
- Listen to the best united science currently available
We believe that listening to and following the best available science should be at the heart of our government’s policies and actions. However, many of our current elected officials choose to ignore the scientific consensus on climate change and deny its severity. Therefore, we must take action to ensure that our government listens to the science and fights to protect our futures.
We are the embodiment of people power. We are school children who are fighting for our right to a liveable future. We are frontline communities who did not create this crisis but feel the brunt of its impacts. We are parents who want to see our children live in a world better than the one we brought them into. The issue of climate change unites us all. In order to stop the climate crisis, we need everyone to join us in this fight.
