Home » Climate Strikes
On 20th and 27th September, coinciding with the UN Climate Action Summit in New York, millions of people in more than 150 countries across the world will walk out of their work, homes, colleges and universities and spend a day demanding action on the climate emergency, whilst those who can’t go on strike are encouraged to add their voices in other ways.
In support of the strikes, CAT is throwing open its doors and offering free entry all day on 20th September for anyone wishing to spend time exploring solutions in our eco centre.
Guided tours at 12pm and 2pm will give an overview of how we can transform buildings, energy use, transport and land use to create a Zero Carbon Britain.
There will also be the chance to join CAT staff, volunteers, students and visitors to sound the alarm on climate change. We’ll have banner making from 11am to 1pm and then hold a solidarity protest on site at 1pm.
Nearby towns, including Aberystwyth and Tywyn, are also staging protests, and we’d encourage anyone who is able to join the school strikers there. Find out more about these or find strikes in your area on the UK Student Climate Network website: https://ukscn.org/
