Photos: Australia’s largest ever climate mobilisation

Issue 

In what was the largest mobilisation for climate action in Australia's history, an estimated 300,000+ people walked out of school and work across Australia on September 20 as part of the School Strike 4 Climate coordinated Climate Strike.

The national demands of the Australian school strike movement are:

  1. No new coal, oil and gas projects.

  2. 100 renewable energy generation and exports by 2030.

  3. Funding for a just transition and job creation for fossil fuel workers and communities.
