Centre for Global Education Film on the Climate Strikes

On 20 September 2019, seven thousand people took to the streets of Belfast to demand urgently needed action on climate change.  Inspired by the 16-year old Swedish activist, Greta Thunberg, and her ‘Fridays for Future’ climate strike movement, the Centre for Global Education produced this film to give a voice to some of those involved.  The strike on 20 September was a ‘General Strike’ in which trade unions and civil society movements followed the lead of young climate activists to call for political action on the climate emergency locally and globally.  In the film we spoke to climate activists to find out why they got involved with the climate strikes and what they think should happen next.  Please share the film in schools, in the workplace, in communities and on social media.
