Strand the Strand - London #ClimateStrike

Strand the Strand is a collaborative event organised by Extinction Rebellion Universities to call for educational reform on climate and sustainability issues.
Join students, teachers and general strikers on the 20th September as we claim the streets outside King's College London to create an open, traffic-free space for climate conversation.

Since our educational institutions are failing to act as if the truth about the climate and ecological emergency is real, we will gather to teach ourselves and each other. Expect an education-focused day of action with talks, teach-ins, art, art music and workshops.
Given the importance of education in healthcare at a student and professional level, the impacts of climate change on human health, and the urgent need for education reform at medical schools, Health is a key theme of our speaker and workshop programme. On the day we will have representation from Doctors for XR and Medical Students for XR, and we invite all healthcare professionals and students to join us in dialogue and help create the reform we wish to see. The day’s proceedings will end with a march to Parliament Square to join the Youth and General Strikers in solidarity.
Please contact xrlondonuniversities@gmail.com if you wish to contribute to our speaker and workshop programme on a health-related topic matter or wish to contribute in another role, such as wellbeing or first aid.
