Save the Children supports the Global Climate Strike.
Climate crisis is the biggest challenge of our time. It is a grave threat to children and their rights.
Child rights might not even survive a global climate catastrophe.
Our land, water, sea – all are degrading. No Child will survive if we do not stop this.
We have created a huge environmental debt to our children and the future generations. Children have contributed the least to the climate crisis, and yet we know that they are paying the highest price.
The time to act is now.
Children and youth lead this global climate movement and are using their right to speak and organize. Save the Children supports children in the global strike for the climate and recognizes the legitimacy and power of their voice and leadership in the climate movement.
We say as Greta Thunberg does: Our house is on fire — let’s act accordingly.
