Fridays For Future or FFF is a global movement that began in August 2018, when 15-year-old Greta Thunberg and other young activists began a school strike for climate. Every school day for three weeks, they sat outside the Swedish Parliament, demanding urgent action on the climate crisis.
Her actions sparked an international awakening, with fellow students and activists uniting around the world to protest outside their local parliaments and city halls, including here outside Dáil Eireann in Dublin. Along with other groups all across the world, Fridays for Future Dublin is part of a hopeful new wave of change.
Every week since January 2019 we have been striking outside Leinster House on Kildare Street. Come Along and Join us!
Annually we hold several major strike days. On these days, millions of students all over the world walk out of school and go and strike together in unity. The times and location of such strikes are dependent on the individual strike. More information will be released when the next date has been chosen.
