One month from today, on September 20th, youth around the world will lead a climate strike - walking out of their classes and jobs to call for action on the climate crisis.

The timing is meant to influence the U.N. Youth Climate Summit on September 21st and U.N. Climate Action Summit on September 23rd in New York City. Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old Swedish climate activist who began the global climate strike movement will be arriving via sailboat to New York that week. Find out how you can support the climate strikers.
