School students around the world are taking the day off to join in a ‘Global Climate Strike’ three days before the United Nations Emergency Climate Summit.
There will be a ‘Global Climate Strike’ rally in the Tweed Shire at Ambrose Brown Park on the Tweed Coast Road Pottsville Beach at 11am on Friday, 20 September 2019.
This is one of many strikes which have been initiated by the student Greta Thunberg of Sweden to demonstrate to governments that people are demanding effective action on climate change.
Students are inviting everyone in Tweed Shire and beyond, hoping for a large number of people to attend to really make an impact.
Ambrose Brown Park is on the Surfside busline public transport bus route 603 which runs between Tweed and Pottsville.
