Fridays For Future Scotland (FFF Scotland or FFFS), (Previously SYCS) is the Scottish branch of Youth Strike 4 Climate, the school strike movement started by Greta Thunberg. It is an organisation operating in Scotland founded by a group of activists in Edinburgh in March 2019, before the upcoming Global Strike for Future.

FFF Scotland are group of under 25s from across Scotland who have been organising strikes from school and work since March 2019.[1], as part of the Youth Strike 4 Climate movement. Their aims involve getting the Scottish Government and the Government of the United Kingdom to take action on the climate crisis[2]. They have organised many Mass protests around Scotland, often getting thousands of people in Edinburgh and Glasgow[3]


FFF Scotland was founded in March 2019 to try and coordinate the Global Strike for Future across Scotland. Since then they have organised large strikes for May 24th 2019[4], the September 2019 climate strikes[5] and November 29th 2019[6]. People now strike all across Scotland with the common locations being Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Inverness, Ullapool and many others. [7]


Many of the strikes organised have seen thousands of people attending. The most notable is the September 2019 climate strikes, where on the 20th of September 2019, over 40,000 people took to the streets in Scotland to protest.[8]
