The Melbourne School Strike for Climate — The Turning Point?
Play • 51 min

The March 15th School Strike for Climate was a global event. Quite possibly the largest-ever coordinated strikes, not just by school students, but by anyone in history, the #ss4c movement has become a force. Listen to how the day unfolded at Melbourne's strike and march, the mood before the event, the speeches and highlights, some interviews while marching through the city.

Mark then talks to key speaker from the strike, Fatima Kidwai, one month on about the impact of the strike, the fallout, and what comes next.

This is very much a lead-in to the climate election, as the students have more than played their part in speaking out, and putting climate change and the climate crisis on the radar. Now, it's time for the voters to play their part in changing the government to one willing to take the required action. So, if you need to fire up your friends and family about the climate election, this episode is for you!
