Statement from FPSE President Terri Van Steinburg on the Climate Strike (Friday, September 27, 2019)

"Today’s climate strike is bringing much-needed attention to the climate emergency. The young people leading this action in our province and around the world are both an inspiration and a reminder of what is possible when we join together. Just as the science of climate change is undeniable, so too is the power of people united in calling for change."

"Our members – educators at colleges, institutes, and teaching universities – see how students are driving change every day and will be supporting their efforts today and into the future."
