Al Gore-led group encourages students to ditch school for climate change

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg attends a protest rally in Hamburg Germany Friday

Anna Taylor, 17, who co-founded the United Kingdom student climate network, said: "Young people in the United Kingdom have shown that we're angry at the lack of government leadership on climate change".

Din said the student protesters from schools around the region will demand "drastic legislative change to combat the climate crisis", citing the recent push among progressive lawmakers in favor of a Green New Deal, a sweeping agenda that seeks to remake the American economy as it transitions off carbon-based energy sources.

Maltese students will be marching from the University of Malta to Valletta, Malta's capital city, to emphasise how they do not want to inherit a land, and indeed world, that has been destroyed and poisoned through humanity's gluttonous greed.

Following the #FridaysForFuture movement, started by the Swedish teen, Jodi is calling on Derry students to "strike" tomorrow between 1pm and 3pm and gather in Guildhall Square to make their voices heard about the state of the earth they, as young people, will inherit. After Friday, some students plan to continue skipping school on Fridays until political leaders take action.

"We need to take more action on climate change now and a lot of that action is not going to come from trying to use the train rather than driving your auto". "Change is coming whether they like it or not", she said.

Omar's daughter, Isra Hirsi, 16, of Minneapolis, is spearheading the nationwide youth climate strike protests across the U.S.in almost 50 states and Washington, DC., along with co-organizers Alexandria Villasenor, 13, of NY, and Haven Coleman, 12, of Denver.


"Earth is our only home, we only have on", Din said.

Letter to the Guardian: "We finally need to treat the climate crisis as a crisis". We have the right to live our dreams and hopes. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. "That's not true. Climate change is affecting us right now".

"I think that change is on the horizon and the people will stand up for their future".

In the same speech, she underscored that climate change is a children's issue since it is her generation that will bear the brunt of the consequences.

"We have nominated Greta because the climate threat may be one of the most important causes of war and conflict".
