UK Student Climate Network (UKSCN) is a group of mostly under 18s taking to the streets to protest the government’s lack of action on the Climate Crisis. We are mobilising unprecedented numbers of students to create a strong movement and send a message that we are tired of being ignored. Throughout 2019 we’ve organised over 850 demonstrations, including the September Global Climate Strike that saw over 300,000 people take to the streets across the UK. We’ve raised the bar and elevated climate breakdown high on the agenda, but we know there’s still so much to do. We need urgent and ambitious action on climate which is why we’re calling for a Green New Deal. Let’s make this a reality in 2020.

People are striking all around the country

Our demands

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change releases reports every six years on the severity of our impact on the planet. The IPCC’s latest report confirms the suspicion that many held: we are not taking action fast enough. Even if we halve emissions in twelve years and reach net zero by 2040, the earth will still warm by 1.5°C. This temperature increase will still expose 383 million people to water scarcity and leave Coral Reefs at a 76% risk of a devastating Marine Heatwave. Changing this starts with you. Find out how you can take action.
