You will notice that, along with thousands of websites around the world, Drupal.org posted a banner message this week declaring we are opting in to a global Digital Climate Strike on 20th September.
Will @drupal website add the #DigitalClimateStrike banner? @baluertl requested it and mocked up a visual… https://t.co/XcIj9Gf173 pic.twitter.com/Zl0ctyc7G6

Of course, because Drupal.org is an essential service to over a million websites around the world, we have to be sure that we still allow them all to continue to access resources here. As such, the full page banner that will appear on websites on the 20th September will be configured to allow visitors to cancel it, should they need to.
Fundamentally, the Drupal Association wants to be a good steward of the environment and recognizes the impact that technology has on environmental issues. We are committed to exploring ways for the Drupal project to reduce its carbon footprint and to become a more eco-friendly platform. Today, we stand with others in the technology industry to educate and inform the general public about some of the ways that the tech industry can support environmental causes.
If the environmental sustainability of Drupal websites is a subject as close to your hearts as it is to ours, you might like to know that recently a #sustainable Slack channel was created for discussion on the topic.
