I stand for what I stand on

I stand for what I stand on is a dramatic presentation by four young climate activists from Gloucester supported by a global digital cast and produced by Strike A Light. Drawing on autobiographical experiences,a love of Harry Styles and Abba, an extraordinary understanding of the climate crisis and cardboard protest signs, this event shares the young international cast’s thoughts and fears about the climate emergency and explores the reality of being a teenager and growing up in the shadow of the climate crisis.

Strike A Light are an arts organisation based in the South West committed to making culture and creativity accessible to all and co-creating work with communities that has significant social impact. Strike a Light have been working with these young climate strikers since 2019 and I stand for what I stand on is touring nationally in 2021 supported by Arts Council England.
