Join the Ottawa Climate Strike!

On March 15th, more than 150,000 students were officially on strike across Québec. At other events, young people across have Canada marched in the streets, demanding action today to ensure we have a world for future generations.

Young people have been going on strike around the world every Friday since Greta Thunberg set off #FridaysForFuture in August of 2018, and have been waging creative protests to push politicians to take bold action and tackle the climate crisis head on.

On September 27, the entire planet is on strike. Not just students, but also workers, citizens – as the climate crisis spares nobody, we must all be mobilized. Let’s make this date an historic moment, a moment of true change.

It is high time we take matters into our own hands.

Join us at the Global Climate Strike to demand accountability and action regarding the climate crisis!
