#ClimateStrike: Global Strike For Future Belgium III

September 20 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm

This September, millions of us will walk out of our workplaces and homes to join young climate strikers on the streets and demand an end to the age of fossil fuels.

Our house is on fire — let’s act like it. We demand climate justice for everyone!

#ClimateStrike

In Belgium, Workers For Climate and the trade unions request a “just transition” to a green economy and society. We call on the EU to adopt an objective to reach zero-net emissions by at latest 2050. No time to waste: we demand more ambitious climate action on every political level, that leaves no one behind.
