What an incredible week it’s been! 

The movement for climate justice is stronger than ever, which we saw in full force when school students led us on #ClimateStrike last Friday. This was truly a global moment, with events in over 160 countries, from Kiribati to Kenya, and 300,000 people taking to the streets in Australia alone. 

Young people led the way, and their message was loud and clear: we must move Australia beyond fossil fuels, and get the job done of moving us to 100% renewable energy for all.  

But that’s not all they had to say. Check out our 10 favourite #ClimateStrike signs from across the country – from the clever and hopeful, to the funny and angry.
