"All because today's adults don’t care about tomorrow. They are stealing our future right in front of our eyes! They destroy the planet by living off it!

The adults are not mature enough to tell it how it is, even this they leave to us children!"

  • And why should we be studying for a future that soon may be no more, when no one is doing anything to save that future? 
  • And what is the point of learning facts when the most important facts clearly means nothing to our society?
  • What use is education when governments are not listening to the educated?

"We may be skipping school but we are not failing school, adults are both skipping the planet and failing their future and ours. Today we use 100 million barrels of oil every single day. There are no politics to change that. There are no rules to keep that oil in the ground."

"1659 places in 105 countries. And counting. Tomorrow we schoolstrike for our future. And we will continue to do so for as long as it takes."

Greta Thunberg, Twitter 13 March

Greta Thunberg has inspired students, striking every Friday in front of her Swedish parliament.

On the 17th and 18th of January 2019 alone went on strike in Sweden. Greta Thunberg cut a frail and lonely figure when she started a school strike for the climate outside the Swedish parliament building last August. 

Her parents tried to dissuade her. Classmates declined to join. Passersby expressed pity and bemusement at the sight of the then unknown 15-year-old sitting on the cobblestones with a hand-painted banner.

Eight months on, the picture could not be more different. The teenager is feted across the world as a model of determination, inspiration, and positive action. 
National presidents and corporate executives line up to be criticized by her, face to face. Her Skolstrejk för Klimatet (school strike for climate) banner has been translated into dozens of languages. And, most striking of all, the loner is now  anything but alone.
The movement has spread beyond Sweden to other European countries. More than 60 000 students went on strike in Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland and Italy.

And now on March 15, along with 105 countries on all continents, students will create a Global strike For Future together!

Tomorrow, 15 March, when she returns to the cobblestones (as she has done almost every Friday in rain, sun, ice and snow), it will be as a figurehead for a vast and growing movement. 
Remember her speech on January at COP24 Climate Change at Davos:


It's already begun. Today all over the world students are striking from school for the climate. For the next 24 hours, they're taking over all channels.
The global climate strike this Friday is gearing up to be one of the biggest environmental protests the world has ever seen. Greta is clearly excited.
“It’s amazing,” (...) “It’s more than 71 countries and more than 700 places, and counting. It’s increasing very much now, and that’s very, very fun.”
Greta Thunberg

Greta recommendations

Some rules and recommendations for those on #schoolstrike4climate. 

"And if you think that “following the Paris Agreement and IPCC” is too vague - then make sure everyone study them. They are the global tools we have at hand today. Let’s use them!" 

Ask adults and teachers to support the strike, tell them they have to come with you, tell them you need them so that you can simply have a chance to survive in the future!

For 40 years, of all political colours, have been failing the war on climate destruction!

Now there is only time to reduce the amount of disaster.

Adults are more than welcome to join students. Unite behind the science.

En France, estimer à l'avance l'ampleur de la mobilisation est un exercice délicat. Mais il y a des signes qui ne trompent pas. 

"Je pense que ce sera une belle mobilisation vendredi, mais pas forcément impressionnant en termes de fréquentation, reconnaît en off un membre de Youth for Climate (YFC). 

Le mouvement composé de lycéens et étudiants se mobilise pour défendre le climat, dans la droite ligne des actions menées par Greta Thunberg, qui trouvent des résonances dans de nombreux pays.

"La situation à laquelle nous sommes confrontés aujourd’hui est unique. Nous sommes la dernière génération à avoir une chance réaliste de prévenir une catastrophe climatique."

Linus Steinmetz, l’un des porte-parole du mouvement 'Fridays for Future'
