Take Action on Climate Change: September 20

The School Climate Strike started as a one-person protest by Greta Thunberg and has since grown to a movement of millions in over 160 countries. In the Guardian Greta puts it simply:

People have risen up before to demand action and make change; if we do so in numbers we have a chance. If we care, we must do more than say we do. We must act. 

The Australian Services Union National Executive has released a statement of support for the School Strikers’ Global #ClimateStrike on September 20th, 2019.
