05 Sep 2019

This Friday the 20th of september, we have an opportunity to gain momentum as a global community to make change in our current system of government to take radical action towards combating climate change, the aim of this strike is to disrupt business as usual to demand our government take climate change, and the extinction of our species seriously. YOU can have an impact, by joining this strike, and any future strikes that occur.

But there's nothing 'usual' about climate change and the alarming rate at which we're damaging our planet. And it's certainly not business as usual for Australia's students and young people to be asking adults to participate in action against climate change.

So for the Global Climate Strike this September 20th, Balmoral Water Sports Center won't be doing business as usual. Instead, joining the Global Climate Strike @ the Domain in Sydney.

What is the Global Climate Strike?

Over the past year, millions of young people participated in school climate strikes to send a clear message that the climate crisis needs immediate attention.

This September, those same school students are calling on adults to join them on the streets to demand an end to the age of fossil fuels. Millions of adults will walk out of their workplaces and homes to support solutions to the most important crisis facing our world.

Are other businesses getting involved?

The reality is that while it's not up to the private sector to lead climate action, we can do our part in this unique moment. Every business in Australia can do something.

A number of Australian businesses are making a pledge to their employees that they will support their participation in the climate strike, through different means.

  • Future Super is closing the office for a day
  • Atlassian's employees are using a 'Foundation Day' (their CSR leave program) to join the strike
  • Other organisations are holding a 'no meetings' day

We are asking other employers to step up and provide their employees with the opportunity and resources to strike on September 20th, too.

Please feel free to forward this on to your contacts who are willing to step up to support employee participation in the climate strike.

Warm regards,

The Balmoral Watersports Team
