On March 15th, over 1.6 million youths from over 2000 cities, towns, and villages set a record for the biggest day of climate action in history, as they raised their voices for the first ever global strike for climate.

Greta Thunberg, the 16-year old climate activist who started skipping school on Fridays in August 2018 to demand more rapid and ambitious climate action from world leaders, inspired this worldwide day of action – and for the first time it came to Pretoria, South Africa.

African Climate Reality Project joined Extinction Rebellion JHB|Tshwane at the Union Buildings with school and university students to demand that South African Government take climate action now. In a country that is a declared climate hot-spot, ranks as one of the dirtiest energy producers in the world as 16th on the global greenhouse gas emissions list, and ranked 114th (second-to-last) by the World Economic Forum’s Energy Transition Index, it’s clear that South African government needs to do more – and quickly – to combat climate change, and Gauteng youth have added their voice to this demand.
