It’s pretty hard to avoid news about the sorry state of planet Earth these days, but in case you’ve been in a media blackout, there’s a huge national kicking off this Friday 21 May.

The Australian-wide strikes are occurring off the back of last week's big budget announcement which didn't really see much funding being funnelled towards protecting the climate, growing Australia's renewable energy sector or an attempt to back First Nations solutions to protect Country.

Whether you can only get out there on your lunch break or you’re able to skip work, school or uni for a few hours, it’s time to band together and show this planet how much we love it—those emails can wait. And if your boss needs extra convincing, send them here and they should get the message pretty soon that things aren't business as usual. 

Here’s where you can turn up for what matters this Friday in a city near you.
