Trade Union Pro Supports ’Climate Strike’ movement

25.9.2019 12:59

Trade Union Pro supports people across Finland and encourages its members to join others from around the world in a ’climate strike’ on 27 September, aiming to draw greater attention to the issue of climate change. Finland needs effective climate policy that helps preserve human well-being.

We can all act for our climate, for example by talking about the climate crisis at work or taking initiative to help reduce emissions. Read more on how to get involved from the blog post  ”8 + 1 ways to participate in the climate strike” by Sitra.

Trade Union Pro is also hosting an event called Living standards vs. the environment? Do we care? in order to discuss the climate crisis and how to fight it. Group and panel discussions about biodiversity, circular economy and food waste will be held in Finnish and members are welcome to bring a friend. The event, held 17 October in Helsinki, is open for online registration now.  

Unions, students and adults everywhere are preparing climate strikes on September 20 and 27 in over 150 countries already. In Finland the main strike day is Friday 27 September.
