Earlier this year, Greta Thunberg and 46 other youth activists issued a call to everyone around the globe to join them in a massive climate strike on September 20th. Colorado is hosting a mass strike in Denver on Sept. 20 and a series of escalated actions across the state between Sept 20-29.
“Our house is on fire,” yell the young folks and they are talking about the house we all live in, our beautiful planet earth. Indeed, it is on fire and everyone is called up to help. Where do we baby boomers fit in?
The Sunrise Movement has spearheaded the involvement of youth in addressing the climate crisis. Their calls for a Green New Deal, a Climate Debate, and support for the youth climate strike have reverberated across the country.
As the Global Climate Strike on September 20th approaches, we are highlighting the reasons young people are passionate about the climate movement and prepared to stand up and fight for the next generation and the planet.
