Global Youth Climate Strike Events at Madison Children’s Museum

Friday, September 20 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm

Madison Children’s Museum supports peaceful participation in the youth-driven Global Youth Climate Strike on September 20, 2019 in Madison and will be offering climate education and civic engagement opportunities for families throughout the day and following week. We believe youth advocacy can drive more immediate collective, civic, and systemic solutions to our shared climate challenges. We lift their voices, welcome their ideas, proposals, and commitments, and encourage everyone to get involved and keep learning so that together we can work toward more sustainable solutions.

Read our blog for our full statement on the Youth Climate Strike.
