This week’s Global Climate Strike organised by youth activists and school kids has attracted the support of Australian media, with a string of news outlets coming on board Not Business As Usual ahead the Global Climate Strike on Friday 20 September.
Since launching with Future Super alongside a handful of other businesses on 3 September, Not Business As Usual has attracted the support of over 1,500 Australian and global companies, including a number of Aussie publishers including:
Pedestrian Group, Mamamia, Urban List, TimeOut, Hardie Grant Media, Karry On, Finder.com.au, Green Magazine, Australian Geographic, That Startup Show, Dumbo Feather, Uro Publications, Kookie magazine, Radio Adelaide, RTRFM 92.1, Renew Economy, Kill Your Darlings magazine and Intermedia Group.
Matt Rowley, CEO of Pedestrian Group, said: “It’s important for Pedestrian Group to make a stand because our generation of readers is being sold out. Not just by a lack of conscience over the environmental disaster unfolding around us, but also by an absence of vision as to how an Australian renewable-based economy could lead the world into a better future for all.”
Vanessa Lawrence, publisher of Pedestrian Group, said: “As Australia’s biggest youth publisher, we reflect the majority view of our readers that climate change is the greatest threat facing our planet. We’re committed to using our considerable reach to advocate loudly and proudly for climate change justice until action is taken.”
