Semblers are Striking – this is why

On Friday 20th September, we’ll be out of the office and on the streets.

The Semble team will be joining the millions of people walking out of their homes, schools and offices to stand in solidarity with the youth-led Global #ClimateStrike

This is a climate crisis. As an organisation, we recognise the need to bring people together to take urgent action.

there's no planet b

We run campaigns that help to create a world where young people are inspired to go outdoors and protect their patch. We believe young people should feel empowered to use their voices to stand up and strike for the planet that is running out of time. Businesses need to realise that they cannot continue business-as-usual while the planet burns. We’re running out of time. That’s why we strive to work with organisations who care about this issue and want to get involved; Organisations that prioritise their purpose and walk the talk. That’s why we’re asking our clients and partners to join us.

Most importantly, we want everyone in the Semble team to feel empowered to get involved to any degree they see fit. Some of us will be walking out of the office and heading down to Millbank, London for most of the day, others will be getting involved in other parts of the country. Anyone can choose not to participate at all – though if you know the Semble team, you’ll know that every single one of us will be out there striking. It’s important to us that Semblers know they work for a company that not only gives a crap, but walks the talk.

Our house is on fire. We’re ready for the global #ClimateStrike! Are you?

We’re striking for climate justice.

For real solutions.

For all our futures.

Walk with us!

How you can get involved.

You can join us by joining the Semble team on Friday at Millbank, Central London. Check the Facebook event for more details. Or find an event near you and share your support on social media using #Climatestrike (and feel free to tag us @SembleUK to let us know you’re striking too!)

If you’re not able to join the strikes but would like to see what’s happening, you can follow the action on our Semble Instagram or Twitter where we’ll be having a climate strike takeover – sharing live updates, chatting to keen climate strikers and sharing practical ways you can get involved from your local community.
