A wave of climate strikes is sounding an alarm on the climate crisis. The strikes’ message is clear–we’re out of time, and we’re taking action now.
The strikes’ inspiration is Greta Thunberg, is a 16-year-old girl from Sweden whose blunt moral clarity has galvanized a movement. Greta recently met Pope Francis and shared a video message with GCCM just after the meeting.

The strikes are ongoing. Smaller strikes are taking place every Friday as part of a #FridaysForFuture effort.
Massive global strikes like the one planned for May 24 are taking place every few months. Approximately 1.5 million people participated in the previous strike, in March. Young Catholics were among them, walking under the banner of Laudato Si’ Generation.
As Laudato Si’ says, we must take “decisive action, here and now.” Register your commitment to climate strikes here.
