School Strike 4 ClimateThursday, 21 October 2021 - 11:00am

All around Australia,
People are taking the day off to demand
climate justice for everyone.
We are in the thick of the climate crisis.
Yet our government continues to subsidise their mates in the fossil fuel industry, putting all of us at risk. We are already seeing the impacts of climate change hurt those closest to us. If we don't take action now and transition swiftly away from fossil fuels to 100% renewable energy, things will only get worse. But it's going to take all of us working together to succeed.
Australia is ranked last in the world on climate action. If we do not take action now, Australia risks being left behind, resulting in economic and climate impacts beyond what we can comprehend. The government thinks that our movement of young people can't hurt them. Think again. Thousands of us can now vote since our first strike in 2018, and that number is only going to grow.
Join us on October 15, two weeks before the COP 26 global climate summit by taking the day off school, work or uni to tell the government that we're serious about climate action, and won't go away until they stop selling our futures. The world isn't waiting, so neither are we.
