Fridays For Future in Aguascalientes – a concert for the climate

One Friday in July 2019, I decided it was time to bring Fridays For Future to Aguascalientes, Mexico. With nothing more than a sign and my guitar, I started singing in front of the city hall to raise awareness about climate change. Quickly, others started joining me – a few volunteers created a bigger sign and together, each Friday at 6 pm, we play music for the planet. What has been most inspiring, and most important about our Fridays For Future are the conversations. We use art as a means to raise awareness, to get attention, and to motivate and inspire in a way only art can do. Many people stop and we start talking about pollution, plastic, changing temperatures and what we can do specifically in our city, country, in our everyday lives to save our planet.
