You’ll notice something different on my site today, a banner that announces my commitment and participation in Global Climate Strike this week.
A worldwide initiative, Global Climate Strike encourages employees to walk out of their workplace on September 20, 2019 in an act of solidarity to show global leaders we demand an end to our reliance on fossil fuels.
Digital Climate Strike
Not everyone has the ability to leave their job.
Digital Climate Strike invites you to participate in Global Climate Strike by promoting in-person strikes in your community as well as spreading awareness.
WordPress website owners participating in Digital Climate Strike can display a banner on your site and add a dismissable overlay to your site on September 20, 2019.
For WordPress.com site owners, you can activate the Digital Climate Strike banner and overlay by going to My Site > Manage > Settings and change the toggle switch from off to on.
If you have a self-hosted WordPress sites, you can install the Digital Climate Strike plugin (which I’m using on this site).
Once installed, select the Settings option for the plugin.
Enable the Climate Strike Widget to display the footer banner on your site. Choose which language you want the banner to display in.
Note: the widget will display once per user per device per day. However, you can change the display to a different interval.
Be sure to save your settings.
On September 20th at midnight, the footer banner will expand to a full screen overlay saying that you’re joining the Global Climate Strike that day, and directing your website visitors to join the Global Climate Strike movement.
