Frome students and teachers join protest in London

Frome students and teachers join protest in London

This follows the massive climate strike in December past year, inspired by Swedish school student Greta Thunberg, who sparked a global movement by camping out outside of the Swedish Parliament every Friday.

How involved were you with the climate strike that happened at the end of past year?

Even though the youth might not be in power, BHS junior Wyatt Rollins is glad that young people are leading the climate movement.

"Now people are not debating whether we should do something".

Over 1560 researchers, academics and educators have signed an open letter supporting the school strike.

"Young people, in particular, have the right to feel angry about the future that we are about to leave them if we can not bring about a change that is proportionate to the magnitude of the threat. Her group is led largely by young women of color, which she said should come as no surprise, because people who are already vulnerable are going to be disproportionately hit by climate change".

"This now means young people in Glasgow can act on their convictions for a better world without fear of sanction". Some people say that I should be in school instead. Although there is not an organized strike at BHS, the environmental club, Leader in Environmental Awareness and Protection (LEAP), will have a petition for Vermont legislature encouraging them to have stronger policies on climate change.

Rollins admires the people who will strike but expects some students to use the day as an excuse to skip school.

Was there a specific moment in the past couple of years that made you passionate about climate action and inspired you to take on a position of leadership in this movement? .

St Peter's student Rachael Stone, 16, is one of the organisers of the Manawatū event and she expected more than 200 students to attend.

Youth and worldwide speakers, as well as folk-activist musician Luke Wallace, will be opening the event at the Legislature beginning at 12 p.m. Students will then take to the streets at 1 p.m.to block traffic at Fort and Douglas Street, where many of Canada's big banks, which continue to invest in fossil fuels, are located. Despite that fact, most of us are not included in the local and global decision-making process. "So, we've got to make sure the Government is doing something, now".

Our current politicians aren't listening, so we want to recruit candidates across the country to run for us and the climate.

The students said that they want the Government to ensure that all fossil fuels are left in the ground and called for a ban on new fossil fuel infrastructure.

One of anthropologist Margaret Mead's most famous quotes instructs us: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: indeed, it's the only thing that ever has".
