Our mission is to conserve nature and reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth
We are aiming for nothing less than a transformation of how we see the world and ourselves in it. We want to support a shift from consumption to sharing, from competition to collaboration. Only by increasing our collective responsibility for each other, can we build a green and peaceful future.
#FridaysForFuture is a movement that began in August 2018, after 15 years old Greta Thunberg sat in front of the Swedish parliament every schoolday for three weeks, to protest against the lack of
action on the climate crisis. She posted what she was doing on Instagram and Twitter and it soon went viral.
On the 8th of September, Greta decided to continue striking every Friday until the Swedish policies provided a safe pathway well under 2-degree C, i.e. in line with the Paris agreement.
The hashtags #FridaysForFuture and #Climatestrike spread and many students and adults began to protest outside of their parliaments and local city halls all over the world. This has also inspired the Belgium Thursday school strikes.
