Climate Change Protest At New Brunswick Legislature

706 QUEEN St, Fredericton, New Brunswick E3B 1C5

On March 15th 2019, there will be a global protest demanding more action taken to fight climate change. Thousands of young climate change activists in at least 71 countries will skip school on March 15 in what may be one of the biggest environmental protests in history. On March 15, students around the world will walk out of their schools and speak as one, demanding climate action. These various independent movements—some as large as 30,000 strong, some as small as a single, determined person holding a cardboard sign—will fuse for the day, forming an impossible-to-ignore international coalition.

On Friday, March 15, 2019Climate Change Protest at New Brunswick Legislature is happening in Fredericton at 1 PM as part of the Friday for future protests.

This protest is happening to demand that the government meets its obligations according to the Paris Climate Agreement. The following is what Canada has agreed to do:

  • To keep global temperatures “well below” 2.0C (3.6F) above pre-industrial times and “endeavor to limit” them even more, to 1.5C.
  • To limit the number of greenhouse gases emitted by human activity to the same levels that trees, soil and oceans can absorb naturally, beginning at some point between 2050 and 2100.
  • To review each country’s contribution to cutting emissions every five years so they scale up to the challenge
  • For rich countries to help poorer nations by providing “climate finance” to adapt to climate change and switch to renewable energy.

Climate Change is one of the major issues facing our generation and we encourage all Graduate Students to join and participate in this protest to show the importance of taking action on Climate Change immediately.
