Begun by Greta Thunberg when she was just 15, #FridaysForFuture has become a student led movement to demand action in the face of the climate emergency. Children from Greystones CNS have participated in all the local strikes to date.
When do we participate?
A few Fridays throughout the year.
Fun factors for the children:
We’d love to organise some poster making workshops before the next strike. If you’re a creative person with energy to put into helping the kids express themselves we need you!
We’d like to create a more structured way to participate for the younger kids by having pledge boards and opportunities to have their voices heard. For this we need volunteers to help organise in the weeks leading up to the strikes and on the day in Burnaby Park.
The Green Committee supports the school by creating awareness about the environment in the widest sense of the word through numerous projects such as:
Activities such as local beach cleans are run through the Greystones Junior Tidy Towns initiative and contribute to the Green School Flag programme.
