UK-wide Youth Strike 4 Climate
Friday, February 15
UK wide student strike to protest against climate inaction, with a global strike on Friday 15th March.
There have been escalating young people’s school strikes across the globe, with tens of thousands coming onto the streets to demand action to stop global warming and environmental destruction.
All have been inspired by Greta Thunberg who began a solo climate protest by striking from school in Sweden in August 2018. Since then, thousands of school students around the world have joined her. The school strikes have spread to at least 270 towns and cities in countries across the world, including Australia, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, the US, Canada and Japan.
