On Friday September 23, For Our Kids teams across Canada joined in the global youth-led movement for climate justice, organized by the Fridays for Future movement.
Thousands of people came out to events in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Victoria with 41 different events taking place across Canada. We listened to inspiring speakers from all generations, teams connected with each other, made art together, marched. Alongside the youth, we called for climate justice, an end to fossil fuel exploitation, a fair and just transition, and respect for Indigenous rights.
Many speakers reminded us of the urgent need for mitigation and reparations to countries like Pakistan, that are feeling the impacts of climate change right now. Thanks to everyone that took part.
