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 Global Climate Strike kicking off this Friday 20 September, and we’re asking you to join us out there on the streets as we send a message to the government that it’s time to take action ahead of the UN Climate Action summit on 23 September.

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.

Brisbane

Official proceedings kick off from 12.30pm, with a welcome to country at 1pm followers by a march to Musgrave Park from 1.30pm.

Where: Queens Gardens, corner of George and Elizabeth Streets, Brisbane
When: 12.30—4pm

Sydney

Bring your signs, mates, best shouting voices and maybe a few snacks to The Domain in Sydney to strike for climate justice.

Gold Coast

Goldie residents are being encouraged to don lifejackets, bring mini wind turbines, flashing lights and noisemakers to Victoria Park on Friday to show just how pressing climate change and its effects are. They’re also accepting volunteers to help with promotion and printing, so if you have some more spare time hit them up.
