Youth Climate Strike Planned for Friday in Morristown

Students all over the world have followed suit, including Neupert, Malterre and their friends, who have made the pilgrimage to the Idaho Statehouse steps with cardboard signs every Friday for the last three weeks.

On Friday, March 15, tens of thousands of high school and middle school students in more than 70 countries plan to walk out of their classrooms and protest at town and city halls. Some people say that I should study to become a climate scientist so that I can 'solve the climate crisis.' But the climate crisis has already been solved.

The protests are calling on the government to stop the Adani coal mine and to commit to 100 per cent renewable energy sources by 2030. They told us to go back to school. Early this week, Hirsi tweeted about the importance of recognizing that indigenous leaders, not young white students, have been leading climate activism long before these hashtags.

CLIMATE action continues to be a big issue for Australians in the lead-up to the state and federal polls.

"Don't underestimate the power of your voice", said Ardern on stage, flanked by student activists Sophie Handford and Molly Doyle, student host Jesse Richardson and Climate Change Minister James Shaw.

"It's being addressed by people who are the last people who can change it and the people who are being affected by it the most", he said.

It is evident amongst my peers at school that we feel let down by our current government.

The move - revealed in a letter from council chief Annemarie O'Donnell to Glasgow's Green MSP Patrick Harvie - represents a shift in the council's message from before the last youth climate strike. But students bunking off school would be dealt with accordingly, he said.

When the world as we know it is being threatened by climate change, how can we sit at school and do nothing about it?
It was created by a group of strikers as a follow-up to the climate strike, as we wanted to make a difference, not only through protest but also through the electoral system. "We want to thank and honour youth leadership in building this local, national and global movement at such a crucial time". "I don't want you to be hopeful". Organising the protest is itself an important practical lesson in democratic participation; young people are learning how to be heard and how to express dissent on an issue that will shape the lives of this generation and those to come.

"The generation that is now making the decisions are not making good enough decisions and as young people who have to live in the consequences of the decisions that are being made today and in the past, we should have a voice", Mudgway said. But the one thing we need more than hope is action.
