Event Details

This day of action is intended to unite members of our community with the Global Climate General Strike community and to demonstrate solidarity with Peterborough’s youth, who will experience the most significant impacts of a warming planet.

To support this global day of action, Peterborough citizens will gather to demand more action from all levels of government to address the effects of climate change. Along with a call for a dramatic reduction in carbon emissions, we will emphasize the need for climate justice, the importance of protecting biodiversity, and the ways in which we can adapt locally to an uncertain future. Hundreds of people are expected to attend.

Speeches, music, poetry, information displays and a march will reinforce the need for us to strike against a way of life that relies on fossil fuels, encourages excessive consumption and that discriminates against people around the world to achieve its self-destructive goals.

Our house is on fire — let’s act like it. We demand climate justice for everyone.
