    Everyone needed: Climate Strike

    Come and find out how you can support the Global Climate Strike!

    Climate Strike Info Session Sep 4

    Every day we hear more bad news about our climate. Every day our kids' future is put at risk due to our love affair with fossil fuels, and a government that wants to open the floodgates to new coal, oil and gas projects.

    We are already hurting from the impacts of the climate crisis. To move quickly enough won't be easy - it will take all of us.

    The world is going on climate strike on September 20, three days out from the UN Emergency Climate Summit.

    Join our information session and hear from school strikers, unionists and climate allies.
    Learn how how we can all work together for climate solutions, and you can support our kids on September 20 by helping to ramp up strike numbers.

    It's time to support our kids. 

    Australia will help to kick things off. We turned out 150,000 on March 15th. Let's see if we can double that, and put our governments on notice.

    • 100% renewables by 2030
    • No new coal or gas including the Adani mine
    • A just transition workers including new green jobs

    Let’s do our bit to turn out thousands - we are aiming at 300,000 from Australia, 30 unions are onboard already - we can do this!

    Working with Allies for a Green New Deal

    The global climate strike knocked your socks off. But the climate crisis is very worrying. How do we build our power?

    Working with Allies

    The huge turnout and strong sense of collaboration was inspiring. But our politicians and fossil corporations seem to have the future locked up. This is where we come together to forge new alliances and work out ways to accelerate change, because we must.

    We will listen to the school strikers, find out what they need, and what our allies can offer. Let's workshop a way forward.

    It's time for Victorians to lead in accelerating our energy transformation and creating thousands of good, well paying renewables jobs. It's time to listen to our vulnerable communities and our young people who are crying out for climate justice. Its time to get moving and get strong.

    Join us for this inspiring workshop with school strikers and climate allies to reshape our future and build power.

    5-8pm, Balwyn Library, 336 Whitehorse Rd, Balwyn
