Climate Strike in Vienna!

Climate Strike in Vienna!

Wir lassen ein “Weiter wie bisher” nicht zu! Am 19.3. gehen wir als Teil der globalen Klimabewegung wieder auf die Straße. Denn Politik und Wirtschaft halten weiter an einem alten, fossilen System fest, das unseren Planeten zerstört. Keine leere Versprechen mehr!

Global Climate Strike!

Global Climate Strike!
Museums For Future will take part in the #NoMoreEmptyPromises campaign by hosting an online #CuratorBattle with the theme #BiggestMouth. Are you in?
Show us the #biggestmouth of your collection in a Twitter or Instagram post!
Decision-makers are fast when it comes to applauding and promising Climate Action.
But besides a big mouth, we need real action … so we decided to approach this with a
pinch of humor. Find an object with the most spectacular mouth in your collection (as
an individual find big-mouthed artworks and link the museum), post it with the hashtag #BiggestMouth, nominate other institutions or people and help us get the message out for #NoMoreEmptyPromises.

Advent, Advent, the earth is on fire … Climate Watch on the Window Sill

Advent, Advent, the earth is on fire … Climate Watch on the Window Sill

“Lights out, light a candle” on December 12th

“As part of a Climate Watch on the Window Sill, candles placed on European window sills can send a signal for the climate and solidarity – everyone acting individually, yet all together, too. Under the hashtag #klimawache2020, everyone can share their own contributions through social media, resulting in an online sea of lights, in line with the motto of “lights out, light a candle”.

The climate crisis has been pushed out of the spotlight of reports and discussions by COVID-19. All the more important, therefore, to raise awareness again. To this end, the Graz Natural History Museum, together with prominent partners and the wider population, is calling for a campaign throughout Austria, Climate Watch on the Window Sill, to take place from 6 pm on December 12th, the day on which the Paris Agreement on climate change was reached.

Anyone wishing to take part and send a signal should place a burning candle in their window for one hour or longer from 6 pm on December 12th and turn off the lights in the rooms inside. In order to make this communal climate watch on the window sill visible online, too, photos and videos can be shared on social media under the hashtag #klimawache2020.”

Digitales Lichtermeer – #FightFor1Point5
🎂 5 Jahre Pariser Abkommen: Am 12. Dezember 2015 hat sich die Politik dazu verpflichtet, die Erderhitzung auf 1,5 Grad zu beschränken. Fünf Jahre danach schlittern wir auf einen Temperaturanstieg von 3 bis 5 Grad zu und damit auf unvorstellbare Lebensbedingungen.🌪️🌊
🙅‍♀️ Die Politik handelt, als gäbe es kein Morgen. Doch Fridays For Future fordert Zukunft ein! Mach am Freitag beim weltweiten Online-Protest mit:
🕯️🕯️🕯️ Digitales Lichtermeer #FightFor1Point5: Schnapp dir am 11. Dezember ein Streikschild und Kerzen und poste DEINE Botschaft mit dem Hashtag #FightFor1Point5 auf Social Media! Du kannst uns dein Foto auch an mitmachen@fridaysforfuture.at schicken. Alle Fotos werden gesammelt und gemeinsam veröffentlicht.
🗣️ Zusätzlich wird am Platz der Menschenrechte von 17:00 bis 19:00 Uhr der Hashtag #FightFor1Point5 mit Kerzen aufgebaut. Werdet Teil der Aktion und bringt ab 15:00 Uhr Kerzen und Gläser (als Windschutz) beim Platz der Menschenrechte vorbei. Von 17:00 bis 19:00 Uhr gibt es dort Reden und Musik. 😷 Mund-Nasen-Klimaschutz und Abstand halten nicht vergessen! 🧕 ↔️ 💁

News from Fridays For Future!

“On Saturday, December 12th, people from around the world come together to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement. But there is no reason for celebration. Our leaders fail to contribute to a 1.5 degree pathway and the climate crisis is becoming uncontrollable. ​Read more! We can’t allow that to happen. ​
