With our global focus, FFFD’s archives of past work is the best place to learn about global climate justice issues.
FFFD 2.0 (2020-2022) We were an international youth-led digital movement of Fridays For Future helping local groups run digital campaigns to increase accessibility and impact in the climate movement
Mission: We helped local groups make the most awesome digital campaigns by giving support in our areas of expertise
Our objectives were
- Make the movement more accessible and inclusive
- Bring new people into the movement
- Raise awareness of climate justice and science
- Put pressure on institutions to create change
Essentially we were a centralized campaign mercenary general activist account: working and posting on various campaigns. Every week/month we partnered with local groups and ran a digital campaign with infographics and digital actions.
FFFD 1.0 (2019-2020) Stand in solidarity with Fridays For Future and get passive people involved in the movement with big weekly digital strikes. It was performative solidarity with no endurance and more awareness than action.
From 2020-2022, FFFD ran a Medium blog writing articles about the themes of the digital campaigns we ran, as well as commentary on digital activism. We interviewed frontline activists involved with our campaigns. The blog is currently on a hiatus but will return soon in 2023 as part of our digital climate resource hub project. We will be publishing articles on digital organizing, activism, and strategy, and interviewing people across the movement on digital advocacy.

- Why Do We Strike?
From 2020-2022, we ran a podcast on multiple platforms, interviewing experts and activists across the movements on various climate and activism related topics. We did many episodes interviewing frontline activists involved in the local fights we were digitally campaigning for. We did regular semi-weekly climate news podcast segments, called Climate Update.
