Fridays For Future Ireland are a branch of the global #FridaysForFuture movement. We are a network of Irish student climate activists leading Fridays For Future school strikes across Ireland in solidarity with Greta Thunberg and other school strikers across the globe
Our aim is to force the Irish government into taking action on climate change in Ireland, we want our government to align itself with its commitments to the Paris Agreement and to do their part in lowering our emissions to the point where we can limit global climate change to a 1.5 degree average warming target
"With action comes hope"
We strike because as young people it is one of the only ways we have of effectively gain Governments' attention. Our leaders require us to go to school, if we are not doing so they have a problem and must put forward a solution. In addition to this, we question the logic of studying for a future that may soon be no more if we do not act.
Who are we?
We are a second level student activist network, with members from across the Republic of Ireland. We're always looking to expand our network, contact to get involved!
