Global Climate Strike

Last Friday, September 20th, millions of people worldwide gathered to advocate for positive environmental change and protest the inadvisable policy decisions being made by those in power.

The Global Climate Strike was organized in part because of the long-standing Fridays for Future strike. F4F was started by the globally inspiring teen activist Greta Thunberg. Every Friday, she strikes to bring awareness to the climate crisis our world is facing. Now she is inspiring a generation of young people to advocate and many more besides join in.

The Panhandle’s main strike location was on the historic steps in Tallahassee. Local student activists, event organizers, local adult advocates, and city officials all spoke. People stood alongside the road, held signs, and chanted for hours. People chatted with strangers about governmental policy, sustainable habits, environmentally friendly pet care, and so much more.
