About this Event

To everyone who cares about a safe climate future, this is your invitation to join the Global #ClimateStrike on September 20 - people around the world standing up to confront the climate crisis when our politicians won’t.

We'll be gathering for a peaceful, colourful all-ages rally and march from 12pm-2pm in Victoria Park, Broadbeach. This is a highly visible location close to trams, buses and facilities.

Everyone is invited, everyone is needed.

Please start planning your time off from school or work - take a long lunch or time in lieu or schedule the day off. Check out the resources on www.schoolstrike4climate.com/sept20 for FAQ's, template letters to schools and a worker's participation guide!

History shows that once 3.5% of the population is engaged in sustained non-violent civil resistance, they achieve significant political change [Erica Chenoweth's 3.5% Rule]. With only a decade left to curb the climate crisis, there's no time left to sit on the sidelines! Please come call for the climate action we urgently need!

Australia is already on the frontlines of the climate crisis. Prolonged drought. Flash flooding. Catastrophic bushfires, severe cyclones and heatwaves. But just at the time when we need to ramp up climate solutions, we have elected a Government that wants to open the floodgates to new coal, oil and gas projects that put all of us at risk.

So, on September 20, three days before the UN Emergency Climate Summit, school students are inviting everyone to join us for our biggest ever global #ClimateStrike. We’ll strike in solidarity for everyone who’s already being hurt by the climate crisis and everyone who will be impacted if we don’t act now: workers, first nations people, young people, mining communities and all of us here on the Gold Coast.

Everyone is invited, everyone is needed.

On March 15, 1.6 million of us went on strike around the world. On September 20, we’re taking our movement to the next level.

See you on September 20 to strike for climate justice.

Please contact us if you can help with promotion, media, printing or otherwise!

This event will be taking place on the land of the Kombumerri people of the Yugambeh language-group. We pay respect to their elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded. We stand alongside indigenous people in their fight for climate justice, and are grateful for the huge contributions Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to make to protect our shared climate, land and water.
