What is Fridays for Future?
We are a global movement started by Greta Thunberg, who on August 20, 2018 sat alone outside the Parliament House in Stockholm, in protest and to raise awareness on the climate crisis before the swedish election that autumn.
After the election, Greta decided to continue her strike every Friday until Sweden follows the Paris Agreement that our politicians signed in 2015. Every Friday, students and students in over 100 countries strike on all continents.
Our message is clear, we demand a future. We demand that politicians take their responsibility, and stop the environmental degradation they have closed their eyes on for the past 40 years.
