The world needs our help and now is your chance to join the global movement and make your voice heard. This week there are global climate strikes in ver 5000 locations and over 150 countries worldwide. Frankie fully supports this movement and we hope to see you all out making noise for the planet.
#FridaysForFuture is a movement that began in August 2018, after 15 years old Greta Thunberg sat in front of the Swedish parliament every schoolday for three weeks, to protest against the lack of action on the climate crisis. She posted what she was doing on Instagram and Twitter and it soon went viral.
On the 8th of September, Greta decided to continue striking every Friday until the Swedish policies provided a safe pathway well under 2-degree C, i.e. in line with the Paris agreement.
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.
Now the movement has gone global and people everywhere are gathering in strike to be heard. It's about making enough noise that our governments must take serious action for the future of the planet. If climate change goes unadressed than the planet is in big trouble.
