Fridays for Future

As best explained by these excerpts from their website, Fridays for Future is:

“…a youth-led and -organised global climate strike movement that started in August 2018, when 15-year-old Greta Thunberg began a school strike for climate.”

“On the 8th of September, Greta and her fellow school strikers decided to continue their strike until the Swedish policies provided a safe pathway well under 2° C, i.e. in line with the Paris agreement. They created the hashtag #FridaysForFuture, and encouraged other young people all over the world to join them. This marked the beginning of the global school strike for climate.”

“Fridays for Future is part of a hopeful new wave of change, inspiring millions of people to take action on the climate crisis…”
