Another climate strike is happening this Friday 29 November around the country. The strike is part of Fridays for Future, a global movement calling on world leaders to respond with drastic action to the climate crisis.  The strike comes just days before a yearly United Nations climate summit kicks off in Madrid, and teenage Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg is racing across the Atlantic by boat to hopefully make it in time.

Fridays for Future

The Fridays for Future movement started just over a year ago, when Greta Thunberg refused to go to school and sat on the steps of her parliament to protest against her government’s lack of action on the climate crisis.

Greta has now become a household name, and has given speeches at climate summits around the world and inspired young people the worldover to start their own school strikes.
