Student Climate Strike – Friday 20 September

In What's on

A student climate strike will be taking place on Friday 20 September between 12:00 and 12:30 at Jubilee Plaza.

Speakers will be discussing what SUSU alongside the University are doing to alleviate the effects of climate change, and how students can get involved in making this change.

This comes at a time of continued worldwide climate action protests in response to a United Nations’ (UN) Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) special report published in October 2018 warning of the dangers of global temperature increases.

Everyone is welcome to attend the event.Read the rest
