On Friday, September 27, millions of people worldwide will be striking from school and work to demand that the climate crisis be acted on as an emergency.

The Department of Geography and Environmental Studies supports this action, and will be sending a delegation of faculty, students, and staff to the Ottawa event.

We encourage others to join us for this important action!
