CAHA supports the School Strike 4 Climate

Monday 18 March 2019

On Friday 15 March, CAHA was proud to march in solidarity with students striking across the globe, demanding action on climate change. 

Inspired by Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg, students walked out in over 100 countries, with over 150,000 students striking in Australia alone. CAHA staff, directors, members and supporters joined the throngs of students across Australia, in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Cairns and Wollongong.
