The School Strike for Climate is one of the most energizing, and effective, things happening in the climate movement. From Greta Thunberg striking from school, one student standing up and doing what seemed obvious, what seemed called for, has spiralled and grown into a worldwide movement, that has hit home, taken root, and sprouted in an unbelievable way here in Australia.
Here at Climactic we are so inspired by the SS4C movement, and the amazing young people involved. We do not seek to speak for them, or lead them, but are very glad to give them our platform, and be led by them.
In this special you'll hear many voices, from the community at large, the leader of the Australian Greens party, and most importantly, of the school strikers themselves. Thanks to all those involved, all those who lent us your voices to tell this story, and set the scene for the 15th of March, 2019. The day of the global school strikes for climate. Hopefully, the day the world changes.
