6 Ways to Take Action During Climate Week

This week, governments, organizations, and millions of individuals from around the world will convene for our climate. From calving ice to coral bleaching, the impacts of our warming climate can be felt everywhere — not just below the waves, but at home in our own communities

This is a crucial moment to join our collective will together to make climate solutions unstoppable! Here’s how you can join us in taking action:

Poster Printing Tips: 

  • Choose recycled paper or paper sourced from sustainable material. Look for the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) seal on the package to ensure you’re making an eco-friendly choice. 
  • Remember to reuse or recycle your poster when the strike is over!  
  • No printer? No problem! Copy our posters with a sharpie and piece of cardboard instead.
