Toronto-based group Fridays for Futures is planning another special event on Friday, March 1st 2019 at Toronto City Hall! Calling all youth!!! Spread the word!!!

Our climate crisis intertwines issues of equity, gender, food, environmental racism, indigenous sovereignty and daily life. No single protest is going to trigger the massive change we need -- so it's time to all connect face-to-face and help each other build both new and long-standing movements.

We are making a space for people young and old to show support for Greta Thunberg's weekly school strike outside the Swedish Parliament.

If you are part of an organization -- anything from a school eco-club to an international environmental organization -- we encourage you to come out, bring a sign, flyers or just a short pitch about your group, and one or two modest actions that people can take after they leave the rally. Let's bring all the climate organizing that's going on in our city out into a public space so we can see how much energy is bubbling away under the surface!

Bring your friends or make new friends -- we encourage everyone to go out for coffee or a meal afterwards, there are tons of great venues right nearby.
