THIS IS WHERE WE DRAW THE line

Mothers*Rebellion is dedicated to fighting climate change with a goal of 1.5°C. Through grassroots efforts and innovative projects like Knitting, we demand climate justice.

INSTRUCTIONS

How to participate:

Knit, crochet or create a scarf with the measurements 15 cm width and 1,5 m length in red tones. Send it or hand it in to your local knitting coordinator. (for contact use our contact info at bottom of page)

Our goal is to go to Brussels in September to manifest and demand political action to respect the Paris Agreement and the treshold goal 1,5°C .

Norway and Sweden have already knitted their lines within the grassroot movement Mothers*Rebellion and encircled their parliaments on respective Overshoot Day, now we join forces with more countries in Europe to push our demands to the EU-parliament since our governments don't answer the call to action.

Are you an introvert but willing to discuss knitting? Are you deeply concerned about the lack of strong policies that help us citizens to make a green transition? Do you feel that you lack confidence in the green transition that is being displayed and don't want to be part of a new wave of green colonialism? Are you upset about the subsidies to fossil fuels?

Well, you are not alone. We are many mothers and caregivers and allies that wonder where the brave politicians are that actually dare to tell the truth about the climate crisis. You might ask yourself; how can I effect my community and the policymakers in EU to think of future generations?  As well as the youngsters and children living now? By knitting a red 1,5 m scarf long you can make your voice heard and be connected. Write an e-mail to knittingforclimate.com and get in contact with knitters in your country.
