Global Climate Strike

Stand Up with us!
Climate for Change will be striking for climate action on September 20 in Melbourne.
To everyone who cares about a safe climate future, this is your invitation to join us, as we walk together with people around the world standing up to confront the climate crisis when our politicians won’t.
Australia is already on the frontlines of the climate crisis. Prolonged drought. Flash flooding. Catastrophic bushfires, severe cyclones and heatwaves. But just at the time when we need to ramp up climate solutions, we have elected a Government that wants to open the floodgates to new coal, oil and gas projects that put all of us at risk.
So, on September 20, three days before the UN Emergency Climate Summit, school students are inviting everyone to join us for the biggest ever global #ClimateStrike.
By taking time off school and work together around the world, we’ll show our politicians that people everywhere want climate justice and we’re not going away until we get it. We’ll strike in solidarity for everyone who’s already being hurt by the climate crisis and everyone who will be impacted if we don’t act now: workers, first nations people, young people, mining communities and more.
Everyone is invited, everyone is needed. On March 15, 1.6 million of us went on strike around the world. On September 20, we’re going to take our movement to the next level. If you’re an adult, please take the day off and invite your friends, workmates and families to join us.
See you on September 20 to strike for climate justice.
We will meet at the base of the Sir William John Clarke Memorial in the Melbourne Treasury Gardens at 1:30pm!
We will be gathering to create banners on the Sunday afternoon before the strike - please RSVP to our Banner Making event if you would like to join us.
