Sheffield Youth Climate Strike Organising Meeting

The Climate Strikes on September 20th were a magnificent success. The biggest school strikes yet also saw the biggest participation of trade unionists and workers, following the call by the Trades Union Congress for a 30 minute workday action.

Over 5,000 students, trade unionists and workers marched to City Hall for a rally here in Sheffield, joining millions across the world in demanding action on climate change. The Climate Strikes by YS4C/UKSCN have been an inspiration, and there are further strikes planned for November the 29th.

Hosted by YS4C, Sheffield Trades Council, Sheffield Climate Alliance, Campaign Against Climate Change and Sheffield Extinction Rebellion,this meeting is intended to bring together school students, environmental activists, trade unionists and workers to discuss what we can do to follow on from the success of September the 20th.  There will also be workshops covering:

  • The Green New Deal
  • Climate Refugees
  • How to organise Eco groups/campaigns in schools, Universities and workplaces. 

 All are welcome.
