Global Climate Strike

September 24, 2019

On September 20, 2019, youth leaders and millions of students worldwide participated in a Global Climate Strike to bring awareness to the need for quick and impactful action by governments and politicians in the growing climate crisis. The strikes have continued through sustained global action throughout the week and will be taking place in various locations around Vancouver this week, on Friday September 27th.

As per the SFU’s President’s Statement on Global Climate Strike activities, the university will maintain regular operations.
