What can I do to help?
STEPS TO FOLLOW:
SPREAD THE WORD: Wear a green circle pin to your school/workplace/faith group, etc. The green circle is the symbol of the climate strike and wearing it shows you support climate justice. By wearing the pin, you have joined the movement!
Green circle pins can be easily made at home by cutting out a green felt circle and attaching it to clothing using a safety pin.
TEAM UP: Get everyone in your workplace to wear a green circle. Through encouraging others to wear this pin, you are making the movement visible and sparking conversation to help it grow!
Organize your school/workplace/faith group, etc. to attend the strike together. It's easier to act when we don't feel alone! You may be surprised by how many people are feeling the same way and how receptive they are.
Businesses and non-profits can consider sending a delegation or closing their doors to direct people to the strike. Schools can book school buses and attend collectively (some schools have already committed to doing this!)
ENDORSE THE STRIKE: Write an endorsement of the September 27 Strike, explaining why you believe in the work of MB Youth for Climate Action, and we will post it on our website! By endorsing the strike, you show others who share your values that this movement is a place for them too.
PROMOTE THE STRIKE: Send an invitation to your loved ones, your co-workers, everyone you know, explaining why you support the strike on September 27th and ask if they will join you in attending the event. By inviting your network, you are utilizing one of the most powerful ways to meaningfully engage people; friendship.
PARTICIPATE IN THE STRIKE: On September 27th 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm, join us and hundreds of others at The Legislature where we will gather for the rally, march, and collective actions and art projects for climate justice!
The number of people in the street is the most important indicator of our collective power. By attending the strike, you are sending the message to our governments that we are all done waiting for climate action!
If you want to do more, youth can attend our Monday planning sessions and adults can attend our Tuesday sessions!

ADVICE FOR CLIMATE STRIKERS
Youth are the spokespersons, with adults as helpers and supporters.
The main message is: “when leaders act like children, children become leaders”.
Please treat everyone with respect.
