Friday 20th September 12:00 – Parade – Global Climate Strike. UCU, Unison and Unite trade unions, 30 Minute solidarity climate stoppage (

Dear all,

This Friday 20th September millions of students around the globe are taking part in a Global Climate Strike. UCU, along with the Unison and Unite trade unions, are showing their solidarity and support for the cause by organising a 30-minute solidarity climate stoppage (see here

UCU Bath Branch is taking coordinated action with SU People and Planet. We ask you to join us this Friday 20th September at 12.00 on the Parade outside the Library to support young people in the streets for the biggest global climate strike yet. We will show our solidarity to climate strikers and we will kickstart the conversation on what is to be done at the University of Bath on the climate emergency.


You can find the UCU climate campaign poster here—you can print it out and bring it along.

Alternatively, if you feel creative, make and bring your own posters!

People and Planet will be bringing chalks to create our messages—their call can be found here


Similar events are taking place across the UK, including in Bath city centre and Bristol, yet we think it is important to show our support for climate action on our campus. Your climate and your campus need you!


Best wishes,


Green Rep
