This is a call to action for all people, parents and children, students and working people, retirees and grandparents: to join the first general strike for the climate on the 27th of September. Leave your schools and your offices, the universities and the stores and take to the streets with us in The Hague.
The current climate agreement is not enough and it’s not in accordance with the Urgenda verdict. We demand a Dutch Green New Deal with fair and ambitious climate policy to tackle the climate crisis effectively.
This climate strike is organised by a large coalition of organizations and is part of the largest international climate mobilization in history. Building on the successful youth strikes which started almost a year ago, young people and adults will strike together for the first time to demand a livable and just world, now and for the future.
We are calling on everyone to join. We will need all the help we can get. Pupils and students, bus drivers, farmers, organizations … Together we can make the climate strike big and strong. Register your organization as a partner or volunteer at: https://klimaatstaking.nl/word-partner/ or http://bit.ly/27SeptIkDoeMee.
