A Swedish teenager sets a ball rolling. A youth in Sudbury catches it and throws it to us . . . Great! I’ve reserved Friday, December 7 on my calendar.

Please save the date: Friday, December 7, 2018.
During the international climate negotiations in Katowice, Poland, youth are asked to join Greta Thunberg and strike from school on Friday, December 7, 2018.
Following the hottest summer on record in Sweden since records began 262 years ago, Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg started cutting classes at school. Dismayed by lack of real action on the climate crisis, Greta said, “If grown-ups don’t give a <__> about my future, I won’t either.
On Friday, November 2, 2018, a youth in Sudbury, Ontario was the first youth in the Western Hemisphere to join Greta’s #FridaysForFuture #ClimateStrike.
The 1.5C report from the IPCC made it abundantly clear that #WeDontHaveTime to wait now.
Climate Reality Canada, iMatter Canada, and Citizens’ Climate Lobby Canada are hoping you will help us. Together we can create the largest school strike for the climate on record.
Our agreed message for the youth is: “You are jeopardizing our future.”
More details should be available in two weeks on how to register for the event.
For now please mark your calendars: Friday, December 7, 2018, for the #FridaysForFuture #ClimateStrike
Keep calm and price carbon. Thanks.
