Young people have woken up much of the world with their powerful Fridays for Future school strikes for the climate. As we deal with devastating climate breakdown and hurtle towards dangerous tipping points, young people are calling on millions of us across the planet to disrupt business as usual by joining the global climate strikes on September 20, just ahead of a UN emergency Climate Summit in New York.
WECAN will be on the ground with a 'Women for Climate Justice Contingent' in San Francisco — come join us! We also encourage our international network around the world to organize and send a clear message that as women, many of whom stand on the frontlines of climate change globally, we are gravely concerned about the impacts of the climate crisis, and the implications of administrations and government officials that promote advancement of fossil fuels, extractive economies, climate skepticism, environmental racism, bigotry and inequitable treatment of women, and frontline, Indigenous and marginalized communities.
We heed the call and stand with young people worldwide whose very future is on the line. We will raise our voices with them to demonstrate women's power to build just climate solutions - and take a stand for all future generations to live in a healthy, just, and thriving world.
