Remember when we were joining climate marches together, like the huge gatherings around the world in 2019? It already feels like years rather than months since we were allowed to take to the streets in big groups to protest and speak truth to power.

Because of the global pandemic, we’re maintaining physical distancing where we can. But from online actions to trending hashtags, from holographic marches, to physical protests maintaining a two metre distance, activists all around the world are continuing to stand up for the future they want to see, in increasingly creative and innovative ways. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favourites. We hope they inspire you as much as they’ve inspired us. 

Let’s turn the crisis into an opportunity. This is our chance for a change. We are undivided, even if we can’t be together.

Across the globe, Fridays For Future activists have continued to demand action on climate under the hashtag #DigitalStrike

One thing is for sure, people are not letting isolation silence them. There is a post-covid world on the horizon, and we will continue to fight for the future we want to see for people and planet.
