Young Climate Activists Need Your Support
On Sept. 20, youth across the world are participating in a global climate strike. As world leaders prepare to gather at the U.N. Climate Action Summit in New York City, the strikers are drawing attention to the need for comprehensive climate solutions.
The climate crisis requires urgent action. Science shows that if we act now, it is possible to reduce our global greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by 2050.
But these young activists can’t do this alone. The additional support of adults is crucial in amplifying their voices and solidifying the call for swift, transformative changes to current environmental practices. Stand in solidarity with these young activists.
Here are four ways to act:
- Call your member of Congress and urge them to quickly pass climate solutions, such as carbon pricing.
- Drop by your local congressional office and deliver this leave-behind urging passage of bipartisan carbon pricing legislation.
- Attend a local climate event near you on Sept. 20.
- Post on social media using the hashtag #Strikewithus or #ClimateStrike.
The climate crisis requires action from us all, regardless of our age or party affiliation. Thank you for helping elevate the voices of young people.
