Global Climate Strike Gothenburg

It's time to do this together!

For the past year, the youth movement Fridays For Future has been striking from school every Friday to protest against our civilization's utter paralysis in the face of our escalating global climate crisis. Awareness of the crisis has skyrocketed over this year, but the necessary action is still nowhere to be seen, not abroad and not in Sweden. For this reason, the movement now calls on the adult world to join the strike on September 27, as governments convene at UN Secretary General António Guterres special summit on climate action in New York City. This will most certainly be the most powerful global climate action in history. So far.

More information on the global strikes can be found here:

In Gothenburg protests will be organised all week starting on the 20:th (https://www.facebook.com/events/394060631266276) in cooperation with the various environmental movements in the city. On the 27:th we will top things off with a massive rally and a proper climate march.

The exact program is still in development. Effort will be concentrated to the afternoons. Do you want to help us arrange this gargantuan project? Please write to the Fridays For Future Gbg group on facebook - there is always more to do!
