#ClimateStrike: Take a day off for our planet (and Tibet)

From the mountains to the seas, we are in this together. 

On Friday 20 September, thousands of students across Australia and around the world will once again take to the streets to call on our political leaders to build a better future for our planet. 

We are joining this global movement to show our solidarity and draw attention to the climate crisis in Tibet. (See below for rally details).

Tibet is warming twice as fast as the rest of the world. If we are concerned about global climate change, we have to understand what’s happening in Tibet, the Roof of the World. As the source of the major rivers in Asia, Tibet impacts the wellbeing of over a billion people. China’s reckless policies are causing irreparable damage to Tibet’s environment and the planet as a whole.

This blue planet is our only home & Tibet is its roof.

The Dalai Lama

We are looking for Tibet supporters and Tibetans to march with us in towns and cities across the country.

Email us at tibet.council@atc.org.au if you would like to join our team. 

We would love to have a strong group of Tibetans and supporters in every capital city. A team leader in each city will coordinate a time and place to meet on the day.

If you live in a small town, you can still help us by joining your local rally and carrying a banner or placard with a Tibet message. We will help you with the slogans.

Take a day off on Friday 20 September and join this global day of action for our Earth.

Ultimately, humanity is one, and this small planet is our only home.

The Dalai Lama

These protests around Australia are led by students and supported by environmental organisations.
