Fridays are for the future in Hope

Weekly meetup coincided with global strike for climate action

Kyla Neustaeter was among about 20 people who took part in the Fridays for Future climate action strike in Hope on Nov. 29.

A small group strikes in front of the Hope District office every Friday at noon, but last week’s strike was also part of a global strike, that included 158 countries. More than 120 registered strikes took place that day in Canada, including Hope.

“We are Hope’s contribution to the global grassroots climate movement #FridaysForFuture, inspired by Swedish activist Greta Thunberg,” Neustaeter said. They will continue to meet every lunch hour, she says.
