For the last year, teenagers have taken the lead pushing for climate action, and this month the rest of us are being invited to join their ranks.
The Global Climate Strike on September 20-27 invites people of all ages to organize in their community and strike for widespread, systemic change.
“We need everyone,” says Greta Thunberg, the high schooler who sparked the strike movement when she started skipping school every Friday to protest outside Sweden’s Parliament building.
That’s where we come in…
Earnest Ice Cream had an idea. They wanted to use Hoovie to activate the business community around the Climate Strike. And they invited some like-minded friends to join in.
Next Wednesday, September 11, local business leaders, staff and influencers will converge at Nada’s zero-waste grocery in Vancouver to attend a Hoovie movie night hosted by Nada, Earnest Ice Cream, Dogwood and Hoovie.
The goal: Watch a catalyzing film highlighting the urgency of the climate crisis and then get the knowledge and tools to take action!
We’ll screen Chasing Ice, a Sundance award-winner about a National Geographic photographer documenting the mass extinction of glaciers around the Arctic, followed by a presentation and Q&A by the Sustainabiliteens about how businesses can support this youth-led movement.
Networking starts at 8pm, program starts at 8:30pm. (BYO cup!)
What better way to come together but over a great film, real conversation and the shared purpose of doing something meaningful with this one precious life.
See you out there!
