Come and join the ACF Community Canberra team as we get together for a coffee before the Global #ClimateStrike!

Meeting up before hand is a good way to ensure the group heads along to the strike with some familiar faces. We'd love to see you there.

This is shaping up to be one of the biggest events of the year with strikes all over the world. The ACF Community Canberra group want to show up and send a message to our government to commit to: 

  • Implement no new coal, oil and gas projects, including the Adani mine.
  • Switch to 100% renewable energy generation and exports by 2030.
  • Fund a just transition & job creation for all fossil-fuel workers & communities.

This is your invitation to the third and biggest Global #ClimateStrike yet!

This massive, student-led movement is building power around the world, and they're asking all of us to stand with them on 20 September for a day of high-impact global action.

In March, over 150,000 students and supporters across Australia striked for climate action. Since then, they're only stronger and more organised – capturing hearts and minds globally, and putting huge pressure on our leaders to step up.

Now, it's time for all of us to stand with them and turn our communities out to make this strike HUGE!

Australia is in the thick of the climate crisis. Our emissions are increasing, and our governments refuse to stop massive new fossil fuel projects like Adani’s coal mine.

But together, we can turn all this around. On 20 September, let's all stand with the students as they strike school and gather in huge numbers to demand climate action from our leaders here and around the world.

Everyone is invited. And everyone is needed. If you’re an adult, join the students in solidarity – see you there!

ACF Community Canberra is part of a network of independently organised, volunteer-run groups in the ACF community. ACF will pass on your contact details to the host for the purpose of running the event. The Global #ClimateStrike is a student-led event with assistance from our allies Friends of the Earth and the Australian Youth Climate Coalition.
