The Amazon Rainforest is on fire. The Arctic ice-caps are melting at an alarming rate. The world just experienced the hottest month ever.
More intense storms, floods, wildfires, and droughts are devastating communities and ecosystems around the world, causing mass migration, rapid species extinction, more conflict, and the spread of infectious diseases.
And it’s communities of color and poor people that are hit first and worst.
We’ve had enough…
With politicians refusing to act, a system that puts profits over people, and an industry doing everything they can to rake in record short-term profits at the expense of our future on the planet.
That’s why we want you to join us for the Global Climate Strike on September 20th.
Just three days before the United Nations’ Climate Summit, millions of people are coming together worldwide to demand transformative action on the climate crisis.
Inspired by Greta Thunberg, young people are organizing this mass mobilization around the world and are calling on everyone to join them.
RSVP for a U.S. strike — there are hundreds taking place in communities across our country. Find the nearest one to you, or sign-up to host your own.
If you need inspiration or want to learn more about solutions to climate change, check out our award-winning podcast, “Think 100%: The Coolest Show on Climate Change”. We are highlighting the voices of young people at the frontlines fighting for climate justice and fiercely advocating for our communities that are disproportionately impacted by this crisis. Think 100% is available on Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, and wherever podcasts are found. Follow @Think100Show on Instagram and Twitter for the latest, and check out the YouTube page. Join the Think 100% community by signing up to receive updates.
Just like in 2009 when we did Green the Block with artists like Drake, showed our communities a sustainable and prosperous future during our Clean Energy Now! tour in 2010, turned up the pressure during our Act On Climate tour in 2015, fought for real solutions like the Clean Power Plan, marched and testified in Congress earlier this year — we want our leaders to know that the stakes couldn’t be higher. Climate change is here.
We demand our leaders at every level of government, industry, and society treat climate change as what it is; a crisis. Solutions exist right now — it’s been time to act.
This September, we will make history and change the trajectory of climate change. We must mobilize for our future, for humanity, for our communities being impacted now, and for the children who are on pace to inherit a dying planet if we do nothing.
Click here to RSVP. This is a critical moment and we need you with us.
