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 front of the Minnesota State Capitol at noon! For updates on Minnesota, follow us on Instagram @mnclimatestrike!
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!
