The global youth movement is sounding the alarm on the climate crisis. Ever since Swedish student Greta Thunberg went on strike in August 2018, students around the world have organized school strikes demanding bold climate action. This September, youth are calling on all of us (individuals, business leaders, change makers, public officials and everyone in between) to join them in catalyzing action in our communities. As a sustainably driven business and a member of NHBSR, we’re answering the call by joining and amplifying the #ClimateStrike. Will you join us?
September 20th kicks off a week of action. Millions will walk out of their workplaces and homes to demand immediate, just and equitable climate solutions on scale with the crisis before us.
Here’s how you can get involved
