Global Schools Action Day


Global Schools Action Day

A group of children smile, holding oversized sunflower decorations. "We're taking part in Running Out of Time, the world's biggest climate action relay! Join us for the Global Schools Action Day, November 3rd"


Launching this autumn, Running Out of Time will be an extraordinary 7,767km non-stop relay traveling across 18 countries from Glasgow to Sharm el-Sheikh - where we will deliver a message on climate action to world leaders at the COP 27 Climate conference.

Gathering momentum every step of the way, the relay celebrations will culminate in a Global Schools Action Day on November 3rd, when thousands of schools will join together in a celebration of the incredible work that is taking place to combat climate change across the world.

Aligning physical movement with climate action and education, this is a great opportunity to get students moving and thinking about what climate action means to them.

We want our Global Schools Action Day to send a message to the decision-makers at COP 27. To show them that young people are ready for climate action and ask that governments provide the quality education and training needed for students to thrive in a changing world.
