An array of Irish animation professionals and animation student support the global climate strikes and address the Irish environment minister.

Irish animation artists join their voices with youth strikers to make the Irish government act towards safeguarding our own existence in this planet.

The ally shares the strikers' goals for a shared concern for the future, and asks from the government to enact more ambitious plans to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero ahead of the current goal of 2050.

Minister’s Office,
Department for Communications, Climate Action & Environment,
29-31 Adelaide Road,
Dublin

To the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment,
We professionals and students of the Irish audiovisual industry come together in support of the global climate strikes out of shared concern for the future.

We join the strikers' call on the Irish government to honor its announcement of a climate emergency by communicating the seriousness of the situation to the Irish public and beginning to take emergency action. Scientists agree that we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown and are in the midst of a mass extinction as a direct result of global heating caused by human activity. It should not fall on the shoulders of young people to communicate the seriousness of this crisis to the government. We call on the government to enact more ambitious plans to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero ahead of the current goal of 2050.
We commit to stand with the youth strikers on September 20th and encourage people young and old to strike with them.

Signed,
