#FridaysForFuture is a movement that began in August 2018, after 15-year-old Greta Thunberg sat in front of the Swedish parliament every schoolday for three weeks, to protest against the lack of action on the climate crisis. She posted what she was doing on Instagram and Twitter and it soon went viral. On the 8th of September, Greta decided to continue striking every Friday until the Swedish policies provided a safe pathway well under 2-degree C, i.e. in line with the Paris agreement.

The hashtags #FridaysForFuture and #ClimateStrike spread and many students and adults began to protest outside of their parliaments & city halls all over the world.” — Fridaysforfuture.org | Fridaysforfuture.ca | TwitterWikipedia | News

“Youth in Canada are striking every month. Be sure to check the map. We are excited to announce that some Canadian youths plan to sister strike in the big global strike on March 15, and they have agreed to unite on Friday May 3 for a big national school strike in Canada.” fridaysforfuture.ca
