For one business, it won't be 'business as usual' on September 20.
Geoff O'Reilly, managing director of Highlands Property said they won't be doing business as usual on Friday as he urged his staff to take time out from the business to support the student strike on climate change.
"The phrase 'business as usual' gets thrown around a lot in business settings," he said in an office email.
"But there's nothing 'usual' about climate change and the alarming rate at which we're damaging our planet.
"And it's certainly not business as usual for Australia's students and young people to be asking adults to participate in action against climate change.
"So for the Global Climate Strike tomorrow, Highlands Property won't be doing business as usual. We can do our part in this unique moment. Every business in Australia can do something.
"You shouldn't have to choose between your job and the planet. All of us benefit from living in a healthy, stable climate. It's what has allowed us to build inspiring businesses in the first place."
The student strike will be held at Glebe Park, Bowral on September 20 12 pm.
