An international school strike is set to take place this Friday 20 September as part as the Fridays for Future movement, which calls on world leaders to respond more forcefully to the climate crisis.
It follows six months after the 15 March global school strikes, and this time, young people are asking adults to come out in numbers to support the action.
Teenage Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg will be joining the demonstration in New York, just days before the UN Climate Action Summit is set to take place starting 23 September.
