Take part in the ShoeStrike without leaving home!
We began with the first ShoeStrike for Climate in July 2020 and will continue in 2021! Join the global event with your shoes and signs to demand climate action and climate justice for all. Modeled on the tradition of Greta Thunberg’s “skolstrejk for klimatet” the movement started in Sweden and has spread across the globe, ShoeStrike allows you to stand for climate action without being in your shoes — a safe way to protest during the pandemic.
Contribute your shoes and signs to a local event or create your own ShoeStrike on a street corner, in your neighborhood park or in front of your home. Ask your neighbors and family to join!
In the same tradition as Greta’s Schools Strikes, people across the globe will continue ShoeStrikes on the LAST Saturday each month through 2020. Make a plan to join the ShoeStrikes each month!
