Want to take action on climate change? Not sure what to do?
Here’s a simple idea: take part in this one minute strike, 11am, local time every Thursday!
- Just stop wherever you are, and spend one minute imagining a better future.
- On social media? Post or tweet “I am striking for #11thHourForClimate with #FridaysForFuture at some time every Thursday, week on week; the ‘hashtags’ get counted. You are welcome to say more! Share what you imagined during your minute?
Why? Doing our bit is good but not enough. Widespread change is needed. Together we can give strength to governments so that they act.
Want to help spread the word? Speak to family friends and colleagues – for more ideas see Spreading the word.
