The day of action is set for Friday at "your school" or "anywhere you feel called." Thunberg, who’s made headlines for her now-weekly school strikes to urge her home country to take bold climate action, made the call from Katowice, Poland, where she’s attending the COP24 climate talks, now in their second week. Unfortunately, she said in her video announcing the strike, "as of now, there are no signs of commitment to climate action." "Our emissions are still increasing. At the same time … the science has clearly told us that we need to act now to keep the planet within 1.5 degrees of warming," she continued. "Whoever you are, wherever you are, we need you now to stand outside your parliament or local government office to let them know that we demand climate action." Climate leaders don’t just talk. They act. Join us!! Global climate strike 14 December.
