SEPTEMBER 25 – GLOBAL DAY OF CLIMATE ACTION

This fall, school strike movement Fridays For Future calls for a global climate action day. On September 25th, demonstrations and manifestations will take place all across the globe, all adjusted according to Covid-19 circumstances.

During the last few months, the Covid-19 pandemic has forced activists to find new ways of protest and use digital activism to demand climate action, as marches have not been appropriate. The 25th of September will be the first global action day of the year.

The coming months and years will be crucial in ensuring a safe pathway below 1.5°C increase in global mean temperature, a target stated in the Paris Agreement. If we are to minimise the risks of triggering irreversible chain reactions beyond human control, we need to act now. It is therefore vital that the climate crisis doesn’t get forgotten in the shadow of the coronavirus but is regarded as the utmost priority. Fridays For Future will keep protesting as long as exploitation of nature is allowed to continue. The form of protest will be adjusted according to local Covid-19 conditions and in places where physical action will be taking place, participants will be asked to take precautions to prevent the spread of the virus. In cases where physical protest is inappropriate, we will instead turn to digital action.

“The pandemic has shown us that politicians have the power to act quickly and consistent with the best available science. But not even amid a pandemic is the climate crisis on hold. No measures have been taken to lower worldwide greenhouse gas emissions in a sustainable and just manner. The billion-dollar-investments that are now made to tackle the pandemic and its aftermath must be in line with the Paris Agreement”, says Eric Damien from Fridays For Future Kenya.

“To actually experience the climate crisis makes you understand the urgency of the situation. Millions are losing their homes and livelihoods, this can no longer exist in a vacuum. We need world leaders to prioritise humanity over greed. The youth are going to come together, over and over again – each time more strategic and united than ever before”, says Disha Ravi from Fridays For Future India.

We will keep you informed about the details concerning the planning of the protests.

Due to the current circumstances actions may vary from normal, because in times of crisis we change our behaviour. Please contact or follow the directives given by your local organisers.

Este otoño, el movimiento juvenil Fridays For Future hace un llamado para el próximo día de
acción global. El 25 de Septiembre se llevará a cabo la primera manifestación global del
2020, de acuerdo con las circunstancias específicas de cada país y localidad en razón del
COVID-19.


En los últimos meses la pandemia del COVID-19 forzó a lxs activistas a buscar nuevas
formas de protesta, como lo es el activismo digital, para demandar y luchar por la justicia
climática.


Los próximos meses y años serán cruciales para garantizar un camino seguro por debajo del aumento de 1.5 ° C en la temperatura media global, un objetivo establecido en el Acuerdo de París. Si
queremos minimizar los riesgos irreversibles que significa esta subida de la temperatura,
necesitamos actuar ya, ahora, es por esto que es fundamental que la crisis climática no
quede olvidada por la crisis sanitaria global del Coronavirus. Fridays For Future seguirá
protestando hasta cuando se deje de explotar y violentar a la naturaleza. Por razones de
seguridad y salud pública y de nuestrxs activistas tomaremos controles de sanidad y en
casos donde las protestas no puedan ser en físico, se harán de manera virtual.


“La pandemia nos ha enseñado que lxs políticxs tienen en su poder la capacidad de actuar
rápido y utilizando toda la ciencia a su disposición. Pero ni en medio de una pandemia la
crisis climática se puede dejar de lado. No se han tomado las medidas efectivas para
disminuir las emisiones de Gases Efecto Invernadero a nivel mundial. Los billones de
dólares que se están destinando para hacerle frente a la pandemia tienen que alinearse con
la implementación del Acuerdo de París” (agregar su nombre)
