Oobi are part of a group of Australian & global businesses pledging to support worker participation in the climate strike on September 20th.
It’s not business as usual for the world's children to skip school to get adults to pay attention to the climate crisis. It’s not business as usual for Oobi to try to get governments to make meaningful commitments to climate action.
We know the number one reason people won't strike is because of work.
Every business can do something, whether it's closing the doors, having a meeting free day, allowing a long lunch, or sending an email to make it clear teams will not be penalised for taking a few hours off.
The reality is that while it's not up to the private sector to lead climate action, we can do our part in this first of a kind moment. Oobi support the next generation in this pledge to try to make the world better - and we hope that other small businesses make the small sacrifice for change.
Check out the list of businesses who aren't doing business as usual on the 20th:
We are supporting our entire team to strike on Friday the 20th as our pledge to help our next generations make meaningful change. So, on Friday 20 September, we’re not doing business as usual. Who else is with us?!
