Climate Strike Canada is entirely youth-led and organized and is part of the global youth-led climate school strike movement. Our mission is to steer Canada off our current path of social and ecological catastrophe; creating a better world by cultivating a culture of compassion and respect.
Inspired by the Fridays for Future movement, students and supporters across Canada will be striking en masse on May 3rd, 2019.
Climate justice is about more than greenhouse gas emissions. It’s about workers’ rights. Indigenous rights. Migrant justice. Anti-racism. Affordable housing. Each battle is entangled within another, and we can’t win any if we don’t unite to fight them all.
In this critical time, we must fight back harder than ever before to strengthen and sustain our communities again. Together, we are better.
Connect with your local climate strikers. Sign the open letter outlining our demands. Feel free to contact us to connect.
Youth know the truth.
That the climate crisis will threaten the lives of hundreds of millions of people.
That we are at a crossroads in the history of humanity, and the action we do or don’t take will determine the future of civilization.
That we need widespread, systemic change, and that we need it now.
We took action on March 15th, and we’re only just getting started.
On March 15th, 2019, 160 000 youth in Canada took to the streets to demand climate justice.
But one strike doesn’t change government policy - an organized movement does. So, as a collective of young people from across the country, we aim to steer Canadian society off our current path of ecological and social catastrophe. Drastic climate action is the only rational option for humanity.
On May 3rd, we will strike again, and we will continue to strike until our demands are met.
Is there not yet a climate strike where you live? (check on the map at our awesome website). You can change that.
This movement is organized by amazing young folks like you! Most of us have never done this sort of thing before, but we've been compelled to act because we simply do not have the time to waste.
You're not in this alone! When you sign up, you'll be contact by an experienced organizer who can set up a call to walk you through the process and answer any of your questions. You'll also be invited to join our Slack workspace, a messaging platform on which you can meet other organizers from all across the country.
Also, sign our Open Letter: If you’re eligible to vote in Canada, sign on to our open letter demanding that all political parties have a comprehensive and bold plan for climate justice. The future of youth is in peril, but the power is disproportionately in the hands of adults. But youth can be the moral compass. Talk to the adults in your life and convince them to vote with climate as their priority.
