On May 21, young people are again taking bold action – walking out of school to demand a safe climate future – and they’re calling on you to join them. Let’s show up in huge numbers to back the students and make this a huge moment!
Australia is one of the sunniest and windiest places in the world, with the people and skills to become a renewable energy superpower while future-proofing jobs. But instead of leading with courage and vision, the Morrison government is backing the polluting gas industry – proposing to pour billions of dollars of public money into projects that will exacerbate the climate crisis.
We need to show them that people everywhere want them to #FundOurFutureNotGas. Decision makers should be protecting our climate, land and water, creating thousands of new jobs by growing Australia’s renewable energy sector, and backing First Nations solutions to protect Country.
Join the massive, student-led movement demanding better from our decision makers. It’s time for all of us to stand with young people and turn our communities out to this powerful, colourful rally.
This is an independent event run by our allies at School Strike 4 Climate and is a COVID safe event. Please observe the health advice around public gatherings and COVID restrictions for your state.
