Creating the largest climate mobilisation ever with an 8 week run in was a huge but exciting challenge. The huge changes currently needed in the world require that we all work together, so for this project we collaborated with viral campaign expert Richard Roaf and his team at Video Rev and pooled our resources to help young people from the UKSCN create a suite of shareable videos to muster support for the largest global climate strike ever.

Working with teams from Greenpeace, WWF and, we trained, facilitated and helped the Youth Strikers to create content that would resonate with their peers, their parents, the population at large, and the media.
