1. Make a sign.
This can be in support of or against an idea, action, piece of legislation etc.. For example: “Don’t be a fossil fool!”, “There is no Planet B”, or “System change, not climate change”.
2. Take a photo!
This can be of the sign, you with the sign, or a group of you!
3. Choose your platform.
Choose your preferred social media platform like Instagram, Twitter, etc. Or post on all of your social media platforms!
4. Post and tag.
Post your picture with the hashtag #fridaysforfuture, #climatestrikeonline, or #virtualclimatestrike, or create your own hastag!
