Global Climate Strike September 20th 2019
We are on Strike! Studio is closed on September 20th 2019
Dear motion*s community – students, parents, teachers, team members
On September 20th we will join the bipartisan Fridays For Future movement, and many groups of society and businesses in a global climate strike on Brandenburger To in Berlin. In addition to the students and students of #FridaysForFuture, others like the GLS Bank and other companies called to join the strike to demand decisive actions against the climate crisis.
That is why our office as well as the dance studio is closed during that day. We hope not only for your understanding but also that you will join us.
Protection of the environment as well as the climate is something we as private people as well as a company have been on our minds when taking actions in our everyday working life. We use biodegradable cleaning products in the studio, we are at a cooperative bank that supports sustainable projects. We provide free tap water both in the glass and for you to fill your bottles with it. Our motion*s t-shirts and hoodies are made from organic cotton or other sustainable materials and the print is GOTS Certified. We do not print large-scale flyers for every event and workshop but try to provide you with information as much as possible by digital means.
Also members of the motion*s team have been involved in the movement weather in community gardens, demonstrations or with art shows.
We believe that many of you are already taking their own action, changing little things here and there. But we are also convinced that it also needs political framework conditions to make sustainable action the standard and not the exception in society and economy.
We are not the perfect environmental angels we would like to be. There is always room for improvement for sure. Nevertheless, we are aware that our actions leave a mark on our planet and try to keep it as small as possible.
We are meeting on september 20th at 10am in the courtyard of AufbausHaus (in front of the entrance to the studio) and will walk collectivly with the team of Modulor Kreativmarkt to the Brandenburg Gate where we will join the big Strike at 12am.
On route we will stop with other companies and businesses at the Ministry of Finance on Wilhelmstraße at 11 am.
In order to be seen as a group we would all like to wear something purple.
If you feel like joining us also in preparing banners and signs e-mail us to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject „berlin4future“.
Sincerely your motion*s Team
Stella, Tatti, Salome, Milena, Elisa, Leonie, Yvonne & Leila
