The international theme is #NoMoreEmptyPromises. In the United States, Fridays for Future USA will be organizing digital actions around this theme and applying it to President Biden’s administration. In President Biden’s Build Back Better plan, he has promised to place renewable energy infrastructure and clean jobs at the center of the economic recovery from the pandemic.
The goal of our #BuildBackGreen campaign is to hold Biden accountable for the promises he made for a Green Recovery and to invigorate our community. We are catalyzing the remobilization of the U.S. Climate Strike Movement!

We are also encouraging people to take a photo of themselves striking at home with their signs, and post on social media, tagging their elected officials. This way communities can speak on local issues specific to them and be heard/boosted by social media on a national level.
These actions will be based on the theme of silence. During COVID, we’ve been in an apocalyptic waiting state – looking outside. This is supposed to solidify the fact that while the people are not in the streets – the movement is.
