Three young people unfamiliar with the issue of climate change decide that the time has come to commit and take part in the fight.
“Strike!” was born in February 2019 as a project to denounce the emergency situation of waste in Rome and, in a more global context, the problem of climate change. In these months, we have documented our reality in parallel with what is happening in the world. Our aim is to try to understand how the reality in which we live influences and is influenced by the issue of climate change. In July 2019, we opened a petition that now has over 66,000 signatures. We are supported by Milena Vukotic. From July 2019 we’ve been working with “Retake Roma” as volunteers, for the recovery of urban spaces through the cleaning and reorganization of the public areas of Rome, starting from our neighborhood.
