GLOBAL CLIMATE STRIKE

SEPTEMBER 27, 2019

On Friday, September 27th an all-ages Global Climate Strike, also known as Earth Strike, will be happening in over 150 countries with protests planned all across Canada. WWF-Canada is joining the students in the streets to pressure governments to take bold action and to spread the word about nature-based solutions to the climate crisis.

Inspired by Nobel-nominated Swedish teen Greta Thunberg, who plans to attend in Montreal, Global Climate Strike could be the biggest mass protest in history as adults answer the call of millions of students who’ve been striking on Fridays for over a year. Even our Pandas will be out protesting in Toronto, Montreal and Halifax for the first time — and we hope our supporters will join us at their local climate strike. (

Protests alone can’t solve the climate crisis, but with world leaders gathered at the 
UN Climate Action Summit and next month’s federal election here in Canada, a massive turnout will show that business as usual is off the table

Week of Action

In the days leading up to Global Climate Strike, environmental groups around the world will be holding climate action events. Here’s what WWF-Canada has planned so far:

St. John River Summit, Sept 18–19. Fredericton
Our freshwater scientist Simon Mitchell will be hosting a forum on the St. John River to talk about how habitat restoration makes us more resilient to climate change-fueled flooding.   

Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, Sept 21. 
To celebrate International Coastal Cleanup Day, we’re organizing events from sea to sea. Join in the celebrations and register for an event in MontrealTorontoVancouver or Halifax. Please click here to find more information about a cleanup near you.

Getting Involved

Mobilize your friends and family!

Ask your friends, family and colleagues to save the date for September 27th. Confirm your local strike's time and location and organize a meeting spot so you can march together.

Make signs and posters using slogans like “Pandas Against Climate Change”, Nature-based Solutions Now!”, “New Deal for Nature & People!” or “We the Nature”

Use creative slogans and re-purposed materials, such as cardboard, to make your signs. 

Wear a green circle

Pin a felt green circle on your clothes or bag to show your solidarity in the climate movement.

Write your government 

Stand with us and tell party leaders that you will only vote for a government that will uphold environmental protection, economic justice and human rights.

Building a future in which people and nature thrive.
