The action group Students for Climate NL is organising a National Student Climate Strike on Thursday, 25 April. The strike is being supported by a number of student parties and environmental organisations. They are calling for students across the Netherlands to strike and come to Amsterdam, gathering on Dam square at 13:00.
The UvA values the social engagement of students and supports the initiative taken by Students for Climate towards a more sustainable world. The UvA recently endorsed the open Climate letter in which scientists call on universities to develop more ambitious climate policies.
Lectures and exams will proceed as scheduled. If students have scheduled lectures for which attendance is compulsory but want to attend the strike on 24 April, they can discuss ths with their lecturer. There is no dispensation for scheduled examinations however.
