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:
1 – Save the date
On Friday September 20th the Exposure Labs team is taking to the streets to stand in solidarity with the millions of youth climate strikers demanding an end to the age of fossil fuels. Mark your calendars and click here to join a local strike.
2 – Create a #ClimeStrike sign
Give our vanishing glaciers and reefs a voice by using our custom #ClimateStrike posters:
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.
3 – Join the #ClimateStrike online
Help us amplify the global #ClimateStrike on your social media with our share graphics + suggested copy:
Social copy: Glaciers are melting. Coral reefs are dying. Our planet is striking, and so are we! Today I’m on #ClimateStrike with the @ChasingCoral team and millions of others to call on our governments and leaders to reduce carbon emissions. We need to create climate solutions that keep fossil fuels in the ground and improve the lives of billions around the world. Learn more at bit.ly/bloglink. #ChasingCoral #ClimateWeek
4 – Become an ally
If we do not act now to drastically reduce carbon emissions by 2030, our future generations will suffer the catastrophic impacts of our warming climate.
