In support of the Global Climate Strike – a week of action to demand climate justice, from September 20 to 27 – Pedestrian Group is doubling down on content that educates and empowers you to do your bit for our planet. Click here to learn more about the global movement fighting for our future.
I’m calling it – Tassie gets the gold medal for participation in the Climate Strike Rallies. I know, I know – some teeny towns basically 100% showed up which is fantastic, and we’re all winners here for doing our bit to support the planet.
But Tasmania has 515,000 people, period. For 22,000 of them to take time out of their day? That’s huge news. That’s a goddamn major percentage of the population! And that’s just Hobart’s numbers, not all the other towns or cities like Launceston.

I’m getting pretty emotional seeing all the photos of people banding together to make an impact – climate change is real and the fact so many of us Aussies are acknowledging it together is warming my cold, dead heart.
As an Antarctic Gateway city, the people of #Hobart know that it's time to change our way of life.
After showing my support at the #ClimateStrike as a climate scientist, I'm heading now back to my desk to better understand how our climate system works! pic.twitter.com/PmUY2zu2OR

According to many reports, the rally is bigger than the Franklin Dam rally – which happened in the EIGHTIES.

Some reports say it’s the biggest strike Tassie has ever seen.
