"We are not going to be left behind. We will continue touring across villages and cities enlightening communities about the impacts of coal."

— Khadija Shekuwe Save Lamu coordinator.

20-27 September 2019, we saw a record 7.6 million people take to the streets and strike for climate action. The biggest climate mobilisation in history.

From Jakarta to New York, Karachi to Amman, Berlin to Kampala, Istanbul to Québec, Guadalajara to Asunción, in big cities and small villages, millions of people joined hands and raised their voices in defence of the climate. The Global Climate Strike shows that we have the people power we need to create a just world and end the era of fossil fuels. Find out more here

Our fight against fossil fuels is a pathway to a united African continent that seeks solutions beyond the tried and tested that’s proven to be destructive. The time for clean energy is now.
