We take a look at what has evolved and grown into an inspiring campaign for climate change, Fridays for Future, is committed to real change, now.
In August 2018, 15-year old Greta Thunberg and other young climate activists decided to strike to protect against the lack of action on climate change and the consequent crisis as a result of it.
What began as a three week Friday school strike has grown into a global movement of young climate activists with clear goals to combat climate change in order to ensure a future for everyone.
Over time the movement has set very clear environmental goals that they believe will help to protect further damage to our planet.
- Keep the global temperature rise below 1.5°C compared to pre-industrial levels
- Ensure climate justice and equity
- Listen to the best united science currently available
The movement works to encourage individuals and clients to adopt the goals and to make them achievable. This is a matter of urgency in many areas and will take a concerted effort from global governments, the private sector and individuals.
