Fridays For Future Earth Day Climate Strike

April 22 @ 12:00 pm2:00 pm

« All Events

Join us at City Hall on Earth Day to be part of Fridays For Future’s next global climate strike! 📣🌎

As Floridians, we live in the state that will bear the biggest effects of the climate crisis. Help us send a message that we can do better in climate action!

We will be meeting in front of Orlando’s City Hall, holding handmade recycled signs, hearing speeches from environmental leaders, peacefully marching through downtown Orlando, and convening with an after party event TBD to encourage further climate action conversations for attendees.

*Please bring a homemade sign on recycled material regarding climate action you would like to see in Florida.

Swedish 16-year-old Greta Thunberg started Fridays For Future, a movement that has sparked students in 150 different countries to strike weekly, organizing by the tens, hundreds and even thousands to stand up to local leaders and demand for action to mitigate climate change.

Why are we striking?
Florida needs to be a nation-wide leader in climate action, but we’re falling short. Florida should be leaders in renewable energy, zero waste initiatives, protecting vulnerable ecosystems, environmental justice, and respect of indigenous land and sovereignty.
