We are located on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinabewaki, and Mississauga Peoples. Colonialism is a cause of climate change, and returning responsibilities to Indigenous peoples is the solution.
Climate change does not affect everyone equally. We strive to actively include these groups in these conversations.
Only 100 corporations are the cause of over 70% of greenhouse gas emissions. We understand that individuals are not at fault and we place the blame onto these corporations and a lack of government action.
Join us at Market Square on March 25th at 1:30pm EST to demand intersectional climate justice. We encourage you to bring a sign, some chalk, and join us to call for #PeopleNotProfit!Learn More

Fridays For Future Quinte started in September 2020 by a team of high school students passionate and worried for their futures. Since then, we have quadrupled in size, with members from all over the Quinte region in Ontario, Canada. Fridays For Future is an international climate movement inspired by Greta Thunberg in 2018, targeting the large corporations and governments responsible for the majority of global greenhouse gas emissions. Friday's For Future Quinte works with other climate and environmental organizations from all over Canada as part of Climate Strike Canada, the country's network of climate strike groups. We do actions at the community, national, and international level.
We understand that climate change affects people disproportionately; these groups include MAPA (Most Affected People and Areas) and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour).
