Join the Global Climate Strike

The climate crisis is threatening people’s homes, livelihoods, health and the cost of living. People on low incomes are suffering the worst impacts of climate change – sweltering through heat waves without escape; trying to sleep in the freezing cold; and struggling to pick up the pieces in the aftermath of natural disasters.

On Friday 20 September, hundreds and thousands of people will take to the streets across the globe in the lead up to the UN’s emergency climate summit, to demand greater action. The climate strikes in Australia will be led by our young people – it is their future that is on the line. But they will not be alone -  unions, businesses and community sector organisations are signing up to support them. Read more or hear about it from the Small Change studio.
