Hello Aleix and members of the KDE community,

fortunately, the JS code for the banner / widget is licensed under MIT and 
therefore free software. The repository can be found at GitHub 
(https://github.com/fightforthefuture/digital-climate-strike 
<https://github.com/fightforthefuture/digital-climate-strike>) and the parsed 
JS script looks like this: https://assets.digitalclimatestrike.net/widget.js 
<https://assets.digitalclimatestrike.net/widget.js> .

We could even clone the repo and host the code ourselves. Hosting it ourselves 
would also have the advantage that we could fully customize it to our needs.

Your's faithfully
cahfofpai
