  • BLOG: Organizing a climate strike by Caterina Lindman

    January 25, 2019

    Having strikes in our local area is a way to amplify Greta’s message and to exercise our own power in showing how urgent it is to avert climate collapse.  If we don’t act with urgency, the world will suffer immensely due to ocean acidification, sea level rise, more droughts…

    December 24, 2018

    We are an action-oriented organization, not a think-tank.
