Students around the world rally to press politicians to take action on climate change. This climate strike involves more than 100 countries. The group at Sydney’s Town Hall square spilled out into George and Bathurst streets, thousands of gatherings to push for activity on environmental change. As a mammoth inflatable Earth was thumped around the square, chants of “hey hey, ho, Adani’s mine must go” and “Climate action now” resonated through the city.
Angela Clark went to the challenge with her daughter, Analise Hoatson, 14, from Cammeray High School. She didn’t share the worry of commentators who criticized the youngsters missing their school.
Presently, students are assembling their aggregate voices in an organized worldwide school walkout, called Youth Strike 4 Climate. Up until this point, strikes are arranged in right around 1,700 towns and urban communities in more than 100 different nations.
Seo gyung Kim, a secondary school student in the South Korean capital, Seoul, came to environmental change activism by means of nuclear power protests. Some positive steps have been taken. Kim is satisfied that the city of Seoul is outfitting one million family units with solar panels and that last year, a floating sun farm- the span of three football pitches was built up. Kim trusts that South Koreans are not doing what’s needed to handle environmental change since they accept it is an issue for the future.
Shaama Sandooyea, lives on a little island off the shore of Africa. She is concentrating for a degree in marine natural sciences – credits her education for motivating her activism. In Mauritius, youngsters feel more stressed over environmental change than more seasoned ages since they find out about it in school and understand the risk, she says. However, there has never been an atmosphere strike in Mauritius previously and “no one knew where to begin.” Sandooyea stepped up: she reached strike coordinators in Europe for guidance, set up a Facebook page and began spreading the message out.
It is possible to curb out global warming, all that is needed is to take immediate action now. It is necessary to reduce emissions to 50% by the year 2030 and stop coal mines.
