Global Climate Strike

Today — Friday, September 20

A Series on the Environment from the Question Line Duo

This world-wide, youth-led strike is the first of many events to take place over the coming week, in advance of the United Nations Climate Summit in New York City on Monday, September 23.

Students across the globe will not attend classes as usual today. Instead, they, their family members and others from their community are walking out of school and leaving work. They are banding together to push for a sea-change in environmental policy and regulation, to push for a real reduction in global fossil fuel usage and carbon emissions, to take action in support of biodiversity and slowing down the way humanity is careening toward total annihilation.

Protect. Restore. Fund.
A short fim on the climate crisis.

We're calling on parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, mentors, coaches, teachers and friends to get out there and support these smart, caring young people in your life. Are any of them interested in participating? If so, do what you can to make it happen. All you need is a sign (or two) and a place to meet.

  • Drive them to the nearest group of striking students (see below for a map).

  • If you can take the day off, but other parents can't, offer to include their kids.

  • If there isn't an event, strike anyway.

  • Make a sign and plan on spending the day with your young people in front of your local county courthouse or government offices.

  • Post your strike to your various social media accounts. Feel free to share it with us on Perelandra's Facebook page.


Call your local newspaper and tell them they might want to come take a picture. This is news.

Are your kids participating? Are you?


For anyone planning to participate in a Student Strike for Climate Action event this Friday, September 20, we remind you:

Everyone take a dose of ETS for Humans before leaving the house.

Have ETS with you in case you or anyone in your family need it during the day. (If you have an extra bottle, bring that too. It never hurts to have a spare among a group that may each need a dose.)

Everyone take another dose when you get home.

Make sure you and your kids each have your EoP Infusion Pump on you before you leave the house. For those teenagers that can't be bothered, you can always tell them that, yes, it may seem a little unusual, but humor you anyway and put it in their front pocket!

For ongoing support through Climate Strike Week and in the years ahead, we offer more tips on using the Perelandra tools to help you maintain balance in today's challenging world here.


If you're not able to support today's strikes, but still want to take action.
