We are children aged 5-18 from cities and towns across Australia.

Most of us have never met before but are united by our concern about our planet.

We are striking from school to tell our politicians to take our futures

seriously and treat climate change for what it is - a crisis.

They can show us that they care by taking urgent action to move Australia

beyond fossil fuel projects (e.g. #StopAdani's mega coal mine)

and get the job done of moving us to 100% renewable energy for all.

Climate change is one of the biggest problems facing the world

and it isn’t being addressed quickly enough.

In Australia, education is viewed as immensely

important, and a key way to make a difference in the world.

But simply going to school isn’t doing anything about climate change.

And it doesn’t seem that our politicians are doing anything,

or at least not enough, about climate change either.

So, as our contribution to the changes we want to see,

we are striking from school. We are temporarily sacrificing our

education in order to save our futures from climate wrecking

projects like the Adani coal mine.
