"If not you, then who? If not now, then when?"
- Greta Thunberg, 16-year-old Swedish climate change activist and Nobel Peace Prize nominee
Our forests are burning. Our ice caps are melting. Our oceans are choking. Water scarcity and heat waves are the new reality. A Climate Emergency is upon us, and we must ACT.
Come September 20, millions of young individuals across the world will be leaving their workplaces, their homes, and taking to the streets as part of the Global Climate Strike, in solidarity with Greta Thunberg's movement asking our governments to take charge on abating climate change.
In India too, we're living in the midst of a climate emergency. As floods ravage different parts of the country, precious mangroves continue to be destroyed, coastal ecology disturbed, and dams built, threatening the lives of native fish species. Join the Bengaluru chapter of the Global Climate Strike, and let’s rise to the challenge together. Bring your friends, family, neighbours and colleagues and let's make our voices heard. This is a turning point in our history. Let's unleash mass resistance against the destruction of our natural resources -- collective action can bring real change.
This will be a new beginning. We're counting on you.
