SGC Admin: The following information is from an email we recieved from The David Suzuki Foundation… we are sharing, because we believe this is the MOST important issue our planet faces today…
 
We do not own this world, we are but temporary visitors to it… and just as we take note to be respectful to any home we visit, we MUST take note and act on being respectful to planet Earth… She is not only our home, but also the home of many, (birds, wildlife, oceans, trees, plants etc) who cannot speak out against, march or protest against our destruction of their home… 😦 
 
The global climate strike is upon us.

This is going to be big…Have you been inspired by Greta Thunberg and the millions of young people who have taken to the streets in recent months as part of the #FridaysForFuture climate strikes? So have we. And now, the biggest global day of action yet is upon on.This Friday, Sep. 27, is your opportunity to be a part of the biggest climate mobilization ever by taking to the streets for the global youth climate strike.

These kids know we have just one shot – that ‘there is no planet B.’ Let’s show them we hear the message loud and clear.

Find an #EarthStrike to attend or host your own

Ready to join the global Earth Strike on September 27?

Here are some ideas to get you involved, inspired and creative.

  • Find out if there’s an event in your workplace or community. RSVP if there is one. Initiate your own if there isn’t.
  • Invite everyone you know. Numbers are key to making this a success. Welcome people into the climate movement and show them how inclusive and fun we are. When sharing on social media, Use #EarthStrike #FridaysForFuture #GlobalClimateStrike
  • Make signs and art to bring to the strike.
  • Get a group of friends, family, co-workers and/or neighbours to make creative signs and artwork. Help make the strike beautiful while conveying important messages.
  • Get inspired by doing an image search of “climate protest signs”.
  • Volunteer to help by contacting local organizers.
  • Have conversations about climate disruption and why this strike is important to you.
  • Let’s get the whole world talking!
  • Connect the climate strikes to the federal election. Make sure people at the strike also get out to vote in the October election. Print these little slips and distribute them at the event to encourage people to vote.

Belonging to this global network of passionate, caring people is so rewarding and purposeful, it’s bound to help lift your spirits in the face of these global challenges.

Join us on Sep. 27!
