Screening at Climate Academy in Warsaw

Screening at Climate Academy in Warsaw

In response to the growing concern of climate issues, several mass protests started took place since November 2018 with a quarterly series of events taking place this year leading up to the main event scheduled for Sept. 27, 2019.
The demonstrations are organized by a grassroots movement known as Earth Strike. The protesters hope to raise awareness of the ongoing climate crisis and pressure leaders to act on those issues. The organization cites a 2017 report indicating that 100 companies produce more than 70 per cent of the world’s emissions, reminding us that in 12 short years the global effects of such emissions will be irreversible and the time to act is now.

Earth Strike is an international civic movement that puts pressure on governments and corporations to take immediate action to prevent climate change. They work by organizing protests and other public events. This year they protested on January 15 (and February 15). In addition to the April event, one more protest is planned around August 1 and a general strike on 27 September. Earth Strike events take place in many Polish and World cities. As a bottom-up movement, they cooperate with other civic movements and non-governmental organizations as well as individual people. They all share a concern for the future of people. They want to leave habitable earth behind them for future generations and other species.

The venue „Osiedle Jazdów“ has an interesting history.
The Finnish cottage estate was built in 1945 as temporary housing for employees of the Office for Reconstruction of the Capital. It was established on the Vistula embankment, between the Sejm edifice and the Ujazdowski Park, on the site of the former Ujazdowski Hospital. The wooden houses included in this colony came from war reparations that Finland was forced to pay after the Second World War to the USSR. In March 1945, 400 houses were brought to Warsaw. Jazdów estate built according to plans as temporary for about 5 years has survived as the only one of its kind in Warsaw, constituting contemporary curiosity of Warsaw’s Śródmieście. In April 2017, the urban layout of Osiedle Jazdów was included in the commune record of monuments.
