Fridays for future…
or FFF, is a global movement that began in August 2018, when 15-year-old Greta Thunberg and other young activists began a school strike for climate. Every school day for three weeks, they sat outside the Swedish Parliament, demanding urgent action on the climate crisis.
To begin with, Greta was alone, but she was soon joined by others. On the 8th of September, Greta decided to continue striking every Friday until the Swedish policies provided a safe pathway well under 2° C, i.e. in line with the Paris agreement.
Her actions sparked an international awakening, with fellow students and activists uniting around the world to protest outside their local parliaments and city halls. Along with other groups across the world, Fridays for Future is part of a hopeful new wave of change.
The goal of the movement is to put moral pressure on policymakers, to make them listen to the scientists, and then to take forceful action to limit global warming.
Our movement is independent of commercial interests and political parties and knows no borders.
We strike because we care for our planet and for each other. We have hope that humanity can change, avert the worst climate disasters and build a better future.
Every day there are more of us and together we are strong. Everyone is welcome. Everyone is needed. No one is too small to make a difference.
