The Algarve joins the Global movement for the Earth as several Climate strikes surge on the map. These marches are scheduled for September 27.
After Fridays for the Future, a movement started by school students across the world to protest for new laws on environmental protection, a new, Global Climate Strike has been scheduled, with different groups in different parts of the world mobilising on either or both September 20 and 27.
These strikes are expected to be the beginning of a sustained mass mobilisation to pressure world governments, in order take action in line with climate science and justice.
In over 150 countries, people are stepping up to support young climate strikers and demand an end to the age of fossil fuels. Portugal is also on that list, and the Algarve has shown its dedication to protect our planet with at least five marches expected to happen, in September 27.
Tavira, Faro, Portimão, Lagos and Aljezur are the hosts of these marches in the region.
The march in Tavira will take place at 11am in front of the Municipal Market and at 5pm at the gates of the Secondary School Dr. Jorge Correia.
The march in Faro will take place in the Hospital Roundabout. Portimão will rally at the doors of the Shopping Mall Aqua. Lagos and Aljezur will host their marches at the Municipal Market. All marches are scheduled for 5pm.
