Millions of children and young people from around the world have been striking on Fridays in an urgent call for action to address the climate crisis. They have called on adults to stand in solidarity with them for a giant week of action on 20th – 27th September.
MedAct members and other healthcare workers will be attending the London Student march on 20th September as a group. You’re encouraged to wear scrubs/stethoscopes if you have them. More info at https://www.medact.org/event/showing-the-health-community-supports-the-student-climate-strikers-september-actions/
Start time: 9.45 am at the Medact offices (with the option to join us earlier from 9.30 am for breakfast & banner making). We’ll then travel to the march together
If you'd like to join for breakfast, email email@example.com so we have an idea of numbers.
Finally, it’s important to stress that we are not calling on the healthcare community – and especially patient facing healthcare workers – to strike on the 20th-27th September. Rather we are asking you to use your break periods and/or your days-off to take action to show solidarity with the student climate strikers while keeping patients safe.
