Ottawa Climate Strike Interviews – Sept. 27, 2019

October 1, 2019 Leave a comment


Huge climate strikes took place across Canada and around the world this past Friday, Sept. 27, with millions taking part including at least 800,000 here in Canada demanding immediate and strong action on the climate crisis, which is getting worse almost by the day. Over 20,000 people walked out of school and work here in Ottawa and I was there to capture some of the sounds from the march. In the face of so much relentless bad news these days, it was truly empowering to see the energy and determination of young people. They simply won’t back down on this one. 

Click the link above to listen to some audio from the Ottawa climate strike including inspiring interviews with two remarkable elementary school climate strikers.
