Global Climate Strikes September 2019

On 20 September 2019 we joined the Global Climate Strike and urged our decision-makers to take immediate climate action.

The strike coincides with a month-long exhibition, The Art of Activism, which we'll be hosting with theprintspace and The Guardian.

If you were inspired by the strike and want to do more, you've come to the right place.

The Art of Activism is a multi-artist exhibition and fundraiser hosted by The Guardian, theprintspace and Friends of the Earth at theprintspace gallery, London.

The exhibition, which is open from 19 September to 13 October, takes its inspiration from the darkly humorous placards that people create for demonstrations.
