Sept 24th: Global Day of Climate Action
September 24, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm UTC-8
The Global Day of Climate Action is an annual direct action rally held in September, established by Fridays for Future. This day calls upon the world leaders to make concrete commitments to fight the climate crisis. This year, it precedes the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP26) in Glasgow.
Students around the County and world are holding a Global Climate Strike to demand a bold response to the climate crisis. In San Diego, a centralized strike will take place Friday afternoon in San Diego. We will gather at the County Administration Building at 1pm until 1:30pm, when we will march to City Hall to meet students from San Diego High School. There, we will rally and listen to speakers and enjoy music!
