Calling all workers & adults to join school strikers on September 20
On Friday September 20, three days before world leaders meet in New York for the UN Emergency Climate Summit, school strikers together with our friends, communities and families are holding our biggest Global #ClimateStrike yet.
Everyone is invited & everyone is needed as we build the biggest social movement the world has ever seen to tackle the climate crisis.
Find your nearest September 20 event and start spreading the word.
We often get asked by adults if it’s ok for them to participate in our strikes. The answer is a resounding YES! Whilst the school strike movement is and always will be student led, the climate crisis affects all of us. This crisis is already and will continue to disproportionately impact upon working class people and frontline communities. It is the same unjust system driving the climate crisis that is also hurting workers.
Which is why we’ve created this Worker Participation Guide for September 20.
If you’re an adult or worker, have a read of the guide and then why not:
Host a workplace conversation about September 20 with your colleagues.
Talk with your union branch about how you can organise around September 20.
Invite friends over to your home for a kitchen table conversation about September 20 and how to mobilise your networks to come along.
Post a workplace selfie on social media (here is an example) to build awareness of the #ClimateStrike

To act at the scale that this crisis demands, it’s going to take ALL of us
We invite everyone to join us on September 20 and beyond. We stand in solidarity with everyone on the frontline of the climate crisis and everyone who’ll be affected by the changes that this crisis demands - workers, first nations people, mining communities, those whose homes & livelihoods are already impacted by climate change & those whose will be.
It’s time for all of us to work together to take on the unjust systems hurting people and the planet.
