Tomorrow, people across the world will take to the streets to call for urgent action to tackle the climate emergency. The global climate strike movement, led by young people, is asking individuals of all ages to join them in taking action. We listened to our staff and their strong desire to participate and as a result Changeworks will be answering the call.
The Climate Strikes organised by young people combined with the campaigning of Extinction Rebellion have been very effective at raising the profile of the climate emergency. The services delivered by Changeworks are all directed at tackling the climate emergency, but on this occasion our time is better spent taking part in the march to the Scottish Parliament.
That’s why I, as Changeworks’ Chief Executive, will be marching tomorrow in Edinburgh – and many of our staff will join me. On a personal level I believe it is important for individuals to stand up and be counted. To quote Greta Thunberg “If not you, then who? If not now, then when?”.
