Season 2 was also a whirlwind, featuring artists Gretta Ray, Bobby Alu, Jen Cloher, Rachael Lia, Lisa Mitchell, Barkaa & Cub Sport. We had incredible guests from SEED Youth Indigenous Climate Coalition, including Tish King (SEED mob & AYCC Campaigner), Amelia Telford (SEED National Director, an Aboriginal and South Sea Islander woman from Bundjalung country) and Nick Milyari Fitzpatrick (a Yanyuwa man from Borroloola), as well as incredible student strikers from School Strike for Climate.
We also invited school-aged songwriters to submit their best original song about climate justice, for their chance to perform their song in a Climate Fridays showcase event and win $1,000 in prize money! The three winners (below) performed live during the Season 3 finale.

Climate Fridays Season 1
Season 1 of Climate Fridays was a huge success - check out the 6 performers below! First Nations guests included Neil Morris (DRMNGNOW), Delta Kay, Nickolla Clark and Warren Mason. The shows were facilitated by an amazing bunch of student strikers from across Australia. All live stream recordings are available to view on the SS4C Facebook page and you can view our Climate Fridays Season 1 Recap video below.
