This September, millions of us in Pakistan will walk to join young climate strikers on the streets and demand climate action now!
Join our movement across Pakistan.
What is the Climate March on 20th September?
As we deal with devastating climate breakdown and hurtle towards dangerous tipping points, young people are calling on us across the planet to join the global climate strikes. Climate strikes were started by school students organizing through 16-year old Greta Thunberg’s #FridaysForFuture, and now adults must join in solidarity to demand climate justice.
This will be three days out from the UN’s climate emergency summit and continue till 27 September, with a series of walks and other activities declaring a climate emergency.
What is planned in Pakistan?
On Friday, 20th September thousands of us will walk to declare a climate emergency and demand climate action now! We will have simultaneous events nationwide, with walks in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar, Quetta, Mardan, Gilgit and other cities. These walks will demonstrate that the people of Pakistan are uniting to address the climate emergency as a nation.
The climate crisis won’t wait, so neither will we.
Who is supporting these walks in Pakistan?
This mobilisation is a joint response by a broad coalition of individuals, groups, NGOs, and social movements across Pakistan. We already know that environmental, public health, social justice, and development groups will join us. What makes these walks unique, is that no one group or organization is behind this, rather it is driven by concerned citizens.

ClimateActionPk condemns the global capitalist and consumerist economy that treats the Amazon as a resource to extract benefits in support of unsustainable habits and lifestyle.
The Amazon rainforest in Brazil are the lungs of the earth. They are on fire. However, there is arson behind the 84% increase in terrible forest fires there just this year. This range of human-induced forest fires have no precedent in the past 20,000 years.
