Fridays for Future Calgary Newsletter - August 10

Welcome to the Fridays For Future Calgary Newsletter! Our newsletter is sent bi-weekly and includes updates from our group, climate and environmental news and ways to take action! If you enjoy this newsletter, tell your friends and family to sign up too!

What We've Been Up To

While we haven’t yet returned to striking in person, Fridays for Future Calgary has been hard at work on educational social media posts, planning for future actions, and assembling this newsletter!

Want to Strike Online?

Many of our members have been participating in digital climate strikes on Fridays in alignment with @fff.digital on Instagram and other organizations to advocate for climate action while following public health regulations. Do you want to advocate for systemic climate action from home? Send us an email or a direct message on Instagram with a picture of you and your sign to be featured on our social media!

Upcoming Events

  • Fridays for Future has recently announced that the next Day of Global Action will be on September 25th! Stay tuned for more details!

Calling All Artists!

Fridays for Future Calgary wants your art! We hope to express the hopes, concerns and opinions of Calgarians through art. The art will be featured on our Instagram and other social media platforms. 

You can submit any form of art, whether it’s videography, photography, sculptures, makeup, 2D visual art, poetry, short stories or opinion pieces! It does not matter what your skill level is, we want to be able to connect our community through an artistic lens!

You may include a headshot or send us a photo of yourself (the artist(s)) along with your preferred name, pronouns, description of the piece, and whether or not you would like to be tagged in the post.

While your submissions will be reviewed, we do ask you to keep art submissions in good taste (no explicit nudity, extreme violence/gore, hateful/oppressive speech, etc).

Please send us your art at info@fridaysforfuturecalgary.ca or through direct messaging on Instagram!
