What We've Been Up To

Despite many of us having started school again, both online and in-person, Fridays for Future is as busy as ever with our organizing! We’ve been doing lots of research and writing for Instagram posts, and organizing for lots of upcoming actions!

Upcoming Events

  • Next Strike: September 25th!

    We are thrilled to announce that Fridays for Future Calgary will be demonstrating outside City Hall on Friday, September 25th to demand the implementation of a green new deal here in Calgary! However, we are limiting the event to fifty participants to respect public health guidelines. So, if you’d like to attend, fill out the signup on our website!

    Extinction Rellebillion Calgary will also be holding an event on September 25th. We are in touch with them to assure that the two events don’t conflict with one another. Stay tuned for more details!
  • Climate Strike Canada Just Recovery Teach-In: September 18th!
