Schools Strike 4 Climate – With COVID-19 shifting everyone’s focus for a moment, Schools Strike 4 Climate are ready to put our planet’s health back in the spotlight.
“The Morrison Government could be protecting our climate, land and water, and creating thousands of new jobs by growing Australia’s renewable energy sector and backing First Nations solutions to protect Country.”
Organisers are calling on students and supporters to follow Covid-Safe guidelines, and meet at Johnstone Park on Friday May 21st at 11am to show support for a sustainable recovery from COVID-19 in Australia, one that doesn’t involve investment in fossil fuels.
