School students from cities and towns across Australia will be joining together to strike for the Climate on Septemeber 20.
Most of us have never met in person before but are united by our concern about our planet.
We are striking from school to tell our politicians to take our futures seriously and treat climate change for what it is - a crisis.
Politicians can show us that they care by takingurgent action to meet our demands:

Replacement of our electricity generation system will also be discussed.

A combination of increased heat, intense heat waves and air pollution from coal burning power stations is resulting in increased disease and death. Dr Kim Loo will present on the increasing risks we face and the impacts she sees on her patients with further support from her fellow doctors.
The Climate Election is upon us. Now is the time when we must act to reduce emissions. Further delay leads to catastrophic consequences. Learn what needs to be done and how current global and Australian policy stacks up.
Can we cut our emissions fast enough? Is this an emergency? – come and hear the latest about the task ahead. There will be time for questions and discussion.
