Fridays for Future are calling for a global climate strike on March 25, 2022. The #EntrepreneursForFuture, an initiative of our German member BNW, have joined the call. The European Sustainable Business Federation, Ecopreneur.eu, is fully supporting them.
Against the background of the brutal Russian war of aggression, they want to make it clear that climate protection and peace go hand in hand. Dependence on fossil fuels must end immediately. The #EntrepreneursForFuture are also demonstrating for a consistent implementation of the energy and transport transition to achieve the Paris climate goals. From their everyday business activities our entrepreneurs know that this is possible.
More than 5.000 Entrepreneurs have already signed the #EntrepreneursForFuture petition. Many will actively participate in the strikes on 25 March, asking for policies to support the transition to a sustainable and circular economy.
Ecopreneur.eu, the European sustainable business federation, together with its member organisations fully supports #EntrepreneursForFuture as part of the #FridaysForFuture movement since 2019. “The young people that are going on strike worldwide for ambitious targets to prevent climate change have our respect and our fullest support”, says Manfred Mühlberger, chairman of Ecopreneur.eu. “We call on all responsible entrepreneurs to sign the #EntrepreneursForFuture petition and take part in the Europe-wide climate strikes”, adds Arthur ten Wolde, Ecopreneur.eu’s executive director.
