This September, millions of us will walk out of our workplaces and homes to join young climate strikers on the streets and demand an end to the age of fossil fuels.
Our house is on fire — let’s act like it.
“If not you, then who? If not now, then when?”
The world’s biggest ever climate mobilization was led by children.
It’s time adults stepped up. Watch and find out why the Global #ClimateStrike this September needs everyone. globalclimatestrike.net
