Australia Schools Strike for Climate

Objectives

We are school students from cities and towns across Australia. Most of us have never met before but are united by our concern about our planet. We are striking from school to tell our politicians to take our futures seriously and treat climate change for what it is – a crisis. Politicians can show us that they care by taking urgent action to meet our demands, which are:

1. Stop the Adani coal mine
2. No new coal, oil and gas projects
3. 100% renewable energy by 2030

Hopes and Challenges

To get the government to meet our demands!

Activity Description

In Australia, education is viewed as immenselyimportant, and a key way to make a difference in the world. But simply going to school isn’t doing anything about climate change. And it doesn’t seem that our politicians are doing anything, or at least not enough, about climate change either. So, as our contribution to the changes we want to see, we are striking from school. We are temporarily sacrificing our education in order to save our futures from climate wrecking projects like the Adani coal mine.
