Today we are joining millions of people around the world to strike for Climate Justice.
There is no time to waste. We know that the Climate Crisis IS the defining issue of our time. This is a collective race against time to do everything we can to save the planet.
The Global Climate Strike is taking place from 20–27 September.

YOUTH ACTIVISTS ADDRESS CONGRESS
Leaders of the youth movement for climate justice each gave testimony at a congressional hearing on ‘Voices Leading the Next Generation on the Global Climate Crisis’, calling out the government’s failure to meaningfully address the threat of climate change.
Founder, Fridays For Future
Fossil Banks, No Thanks! is calling for an end to fossil fuel finance by private sector banks.
Read BankTrack’s statement of support for the Global Climate Strike:
“From September 20 to 27, BankTrack will be joining and supporting events organised and led by the Youth Strikers. We call on all bank workers who see the crisis we are in, whose children may already be climate activists, to join the Global Climate Strike or support it in whatever way they can. Bank employees, by disrupting business as usual, can show decision-makers at banks that there is support among their workforce for strong climate action, and for banks to play their role in ending the age of fossil fuels.”
UNITED NATIONS CLIMATE ACTION SUMMIT
We want to remind you that the UN Climate Action Summit 2019 is taking place next week starting September 23. This is a crucial opportunity to hold your elected leaders accountable for the decisions they make for our planet.
UN Secretary-General António Guterres is calling on leaders to come to the summit with concrete, realistic plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 45 percent over the next decade, and to net zero emissions by 2050.
Earlier this year, MADRE joined with the Indigenous Environmental Network to convene an international delegation of Indigenous women. With women from Colombia, Guatemala, Israel, Kenya, Nepal, and Nicaragua, they travelled to North Dakota to see firsthand the damage that extractive industries, like oil and gas mega-projects, were inflicting on Indigenous communities — and to talk about solutions.
Watch the film by MADRE and be inspired by those who are relentlessly working to protect our planet.
