Build our Future | Climate Justice and Jobs

Conversation | Ofa Foiakau | 13th July 2020

School Strike 4 Climate, alongside First Nation communities, workers and unions are organising COVID safe ways to come together and demand that our Government funds for our future not gas!

Actions taking place September 25 will demand:

No public funds for gas and other damaging fossil fuel projects. Instead, recover funds should be spent on

  1. Resourcing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-Led solutions that guarantee land rights and care for country
  2. The creation of jobs that fast-track solutions to the climate crisis and help communities recover
  3. Projects that transition our economy and communities to 100% renewable energy by 2030, through expanded public ownership.

Check if an action is happening in your area here!

If you are interested in taking part in this movement on September 25 but find that there is no action happening in your area, SS4C provide 9 steps to host an action! This includes planning to be COVID safe, planning your action, registering your event, resources to start organising your action, meeting with friends and supporters, letting school or work know, promoting and recruiting, and sharing how your action went!
