The FridaysForFuture initiative – a youth led movement demonstrating for more ambitious climate change policy all over Europe – has arrived in Austria some time ago and is now being officially supported by science. In several countries, scientists are already supporting young people through statements in this matter via the initiative Scientists4Future.

The aim of this press conference is to present details of the statement Scientists4Future to the public, highlight the crucial relevance of the findings for our future and invite further scientists to express their support.
