A personal message from our Director, Zoya Godoroja-Prieckaerts…
Dear friends, peers, individuals, businesses, organisations - everyone,
This Friday begins the week of Climate Action, and, jeez, I feel buzzed and excited and worried and proud to be part of it all. I encourage you all, from the bottom of my heart with so much love and hope, that you will join in all the actions happening around the world.
If you’re in Alice, here’s what you should join in on:
THIS FRIDAY 20TH - Global Strike For Climate
8am @ Church Lawns, Todd Mall: Student-led strike (students have asked adults to join them in solidarity, so don’t be worried to come if you’re over 18. This is for everyone 💖)
10am, 4pm, 6pm @ Alice Springs Cinema: FREE screenings of the 2040 film.
12pm @ Church Lawns, Todd Mall: lunch by the many local businesses in town who are joining the #CLOSEDFORCLIMATE movement.
3:30pm @ Town Council Lawns: #FridaysForFuture (Alice Springs mob Fridays for the Future) session to talk about ways we can make a difference as individuals.
5-8pm @ Watch This Space: Chill Out! Climate strike wrap up. Come together, relax, share and celebrate this monumental day in history with food, drinks, music and stuff for kids. Not heccas, just nice vibes. All funds go towards safe efforts to stop the planned fracking in the NT in November.
Such an amazing day of actions by all different groups across town.
If you haven’t taken the day off, talk to your bosses about how important this day is in the bigger (global) scheme of things. I was so excited to find out that Congress are going to be striking for the day, which - along with all the other groups making efforts - I think shows how dedicated individuals, businesses and organisations are to taking action in the name of climate justice.
WEDNESDAY 25TH, 5pm @ top of Anzac Hill: Alice Heat Wave
Come for a massive “Mexican wave” to show our leaders we CARE.
FRIDAY 27TH, 5pm @ Todd Mall (library end): FLOSS for the Future
Join kids and adults “flossing” to attract media (and governments) attention.
Every single action makes a difference, and every individual joining in on those actions adds up to a whole world making an impact. I truly hope to see you there.
