Climate Activists Return to the Fray Post-Lockdown | Metropole

After nearly four months of lockdown, Fridays for Future (FFF) climate activists in Vienna are regaining traction after COVID-19 brought the movement to a sudden halt. Now, with life returning to normal, activist were able to get back together in person on June 12 on Ballhausplatz to relaunch efforts to turn public attention back to the climate crisis. 

Their first event was a “dome talk” a week later, on June 19th. The question: How citizens can change politics. A canvas-covered dome of wooden poles was thrown up in front of the Rathaus and hung with FFF banners as activists gathered: some with masks, many arriving on bicycles, chatting and laughing, clearly pleased to be back.

Among the organizers and long-time activists, teenagers flocked in groups, others in pairs. The heavy clouds encouraged rain gear, as a sea of umbrellas opened like mushrooms against the elements. Nobody minded. At least they were out of the house.
