Hosted by MN Youth Climate Strikes
From the hosts:
On March 15, 2019 youth climate strikes will be taking place throughout the US. 40 countries on all continents will be participating in strikes on this day to show the climate crisis is a crisis! Join us in Duluth at the Peoples Power Plaza at 4:30 to demand climate action now. All are welcome no matter your age! This is an event focused on our future though, so keep that it mind. The Duluth strike is in partner with the Minnesota Climate Strikes. For updates on Minnesota, follow us on Instagram @mnclimatestrike and like us on facebook!
The demands of US Youth Climate Strike are:
We demand a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in line with the October 2018 IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C.
We demand our world leaders take action that ensures global warming remains under 1.5 degrees.
We demand that our US legislators implement the Green New Deal and other legislative actions that decrease the climate crisis.
In addition, Minnesota Youth Climate Strike supports the Minnesota Green New Deal.
We are calling on our governments to provide proof of a safe pathway well below 2°c. If adults can not provide proof, be honest, admit this failure and join our strike! To learn more about our organization, please visit youthclimatestrikeus.org!
