    Hi Kevin,

    “It’s so encouraging to see young people determined to take to the streets.”

    This was my friend Paula yesterday as she shared her experience of joining a meeting of grassroots groups from across Europe. She was hopeful and excited about the wave of climate action being led by youth, and all the people they’re bringing with them!

    I too have been inspired by the calls being led by the climate strikers and have been looking for ways our movement can act in solidarity with them.

    Through our partners in South-Eastern Europe, we know activists there lack resources to get going in the same way they have been doing in the UK, Germany and Belgium: organising can be costly!

    To fight the climate crisis we need strong movements all over Europe! As a European community, we are well equipped to support mobilisations where they are needed in Europe.

    We’ll kickstart our support plan the minute we have the budget, and your enthusiasm for it. To start we need at least 17,000 euros over the next 6 months – the minimum to arrange to meet activists on the ground, run baseline research, and support actions. Would you start a regular donation to make this a reality?

    Yes, I’ll donate to bring the wave of climate action to every corner of Europe!
    Across the world, movements are gearing up for a big moment – a global strike for climate. Next month, between 20 and 27 September, thousands of actions will be springing up – we’ll share details of the nearest action to you soon.

    Checking the map of planned actions in Europe, it is obvious where more mobilising power is needed. Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, and other South-Eastern European countries — there are some active groups, but their political and economic circumstances are difficult.

    To fight the climate crisis, we need to see people calling for change all across Europe – that’s why it’s our community’s responsibility to help those who are ready to spring to action. We’ve run an initial consultation with groups in the region, and their first reactions are promising.

    They’ve told us they need things like:

    Resources to organise meetings across borders in their region, to get coordinated and make the most of their limited resources;
    Expertise on how to boost their public messaging, and make this crisis resonate with everyone;
    Money to pay for basic expenses to travel to action sites, or materials for props and banners.
    There’s no time to waste – we need to make a move now. With your support behind this, we can supercharge movements across Europe. Will you start a regular donation to make this a reality?

    Yes, I’ll donate to bring the wave of climate action to every corner of Europe!
    As you read this, thousands of people like Paula are preparing – props, liaising with neighbours, getting permits to march, designing banners – to be ready for action this September. We’ll be joining them, and we hope with your help we can make sure everyone, no matter where in Europe they live, is able to fight for our planet whatever the circumstance.

    Thank you for helping to build a truly pan-European wave of climate action,

    Virginia and the whole We Move Europe team
