Zero Hour NYC

WE MADE HISTORY.

Never before, in the history of our world, has there been a coordinated global protest all around the world, for the same cause of climate change on the same day! It is even more historic that young people are leading it!

Why are we striking?

We are a group of concerned teenagers from all different backgrounds who've had enough of sitting around and waiting for action to resolve the climate crisis. We are standing up for our future on this planet as we, along with youth from across the globe inspired by Greta Thunberg's weekly strikes in Sweden, demand radical action be taken. We refuse to be silent any longer. We are running against the clock and we refuse to let our leaders make irresponsible decisions on issues that effect us most. 

OUR DEMANDS

The demands of the Youth Climate March are...

  1. We demand a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in line with the October 2018 IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 degrees Celsius.
  2. We demand our world leaders take action that ensures global warming remains under 1.5 degrees Celsius.
  3. We demand that our US legislators implement the Green New Deal and other legislative actions that mitigate the climate crisis.
