EVENTS AROUND AUSTRALIA
To everyone who cares about a safe climate future, this is your invitation to join the Global #ClimateStrike on September 20 - people around the world standing up to confront the climate crisis when our politicians won’t.
So, on September 20, three days before the UN Emergency Climate Summit, school students are inviting everyone to join us for our biggest ever global #ClimateStrike.
By taking time off school and work together around the world, we’ll show our politicians that people everywhere want climate justice and we’re not going away until we get it. We’ll strike in solidarity for everyone who’s already being hurt by the climate crisis and everyone who will be impacted if we don’t act now: workers, first nations people, young people, mining communities and more.
Everyone is invited, everyone is needed. On March 15, 1.6 million of us went on strike around the world. On September 20, we’re going to take our movement to the next level. If you’re an adult, please take the day off and invite your friends, workmates and families to join us.
See you on September 20 to strike for climate justice.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA: INTERNATIONAL PEACE DAY
Free native seeds for SA Schools for International Day of Peace
Roots & Shoots schools in SA are exclusively offered 100 free native seeds to help us celebrate the UN International Day of Peace on 21 September!
The theme of this year’s Day of Peace is Climate Change for Peace, and we are providing seeds to teachers so their students can make native seed balls to help offset carbon emissions.
The little seed balls are easy and fun to make and can be planted in your school to attract bees and beautify the school grounds, while educating students about the importance of native plants to the environment.
The seeds will grow into trees which reduce global warning by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing it in their trunks and soil, and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere.
UN International Day of Peace is a globally shared date when people commit to building a culture of peace. It is represented by Roots & Shoots founder Dr Jane Goodall, a UN Messenger of Peace.
This exclusive offer is only available to teachers who are Roots & Shoots members in South Australia and is kindly sponsored by Blackwood Seeds.
If you would like more information about this special offer, please contact SA Roots & Shoots Coordinator Wendy Fowler at email@example.com or on 0409 257 722.
