Pupils in call to #ActNow for Climate Change

Pupils from across St George’s have been engaged in conversations around Climate Change.

Inspired by a 15 year old Swedish student, Greta Thunberg, who sparked a global movement, and Marevivo, the Italian driving-force behind the mobilisation of student support for climate action, pupils have been exploring the ways in which they, as individuals, and we, as a community, can make a difference.

Their ideas will be formulated into an action plan geared towards further activities on 15 March. The St George’s social media platforms will be an integral platform for the students to spread their message.

Scientists have highlighted that our earth faces unprecedented danger.

The facts:

  • There is no debate among climate scientists that human-generated carbon pollution is the primary reason for global warming.
  • The 6 hottest years on record have all been since 2010.
  • Climate-related disasters like floods, hurricanes, heat waves, and droughts cause hundreds of billions of dollars of damage every year, destroying lives and communities across the world.
  • We have the solutions -- renewable energy is cheaper than fossil fuels across much of the world.

Students from Australia to Japan have been seeking to hold world leaders accountable to deliver on the kinds of action needed that will protect the future for everyone.
