I StandWithGreta and pledge to
· participate in the Global Climate Strike on September 20
· engage in positive discussion with my supervisors, colleagues, and professors about my participation 1)
· share my pledge with family, friends, colleagues, and fellow students
On August 20, 2018, 16-year-old Greta Thunberg walked out of her Stockholm school and stood in front of the Swedish Parliament building with a sign that read “School Strike for Climate.” Her demand was climate justice and a living planet.
Today, Greta is joined by tens of thousands of teenage leaders around the world who walk out of schools on Fridays to ask for decisive action on the climate crisis.
I support Greta’s call to action and pledge to #StandWithGreta on September 20 in the fight against climate change.
I also recognize the need to do more. Globally, the building sector accounts for nearly 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions, and buildings alone account for 72% of U.S. electricity use. The transition from fossil fuels to a thriving zero-carbon economy isn’t just possible – it is necessary. And designers must lead the way.
As a member of the American design and construction industry, I am dedicated to tackling the challenging issues that threaten our planet by creating healthy, responsible, and safe communities for all.
Please join me in standing up for the next generation.

1) Participation in the Climate Strike can take many forms. We recommend you #StandWithGreta for 30 to 60 minutes – and longer if possible - in a public place or outside your office, with a sign in support of Greta and the world’s youth. Whatever form your strike takes, send a picture of it to @architectsadvocate and share it on social media with the hashtag #StandWithGreta.
Yes! - I am pledging to StandwithGreta.
