CLIMATE STRIKE TODAY
Updated: Jul 2, 2019
The School Strike for Climate takes place today!
Started by 16-year-old Swedish student, Greta Thunberg, this event will take place globally on the 15th of March 2019.
While skipping school is not generally encouraged, this form of protest to bring awareness throughout the globe as students are given a chance to voice their thoughts. After all, they are the future generation that will inherit the world with all it's climate problems now, so they should have a say in how politicians make their decisions when it comes to climate related issues. (Besides, the skipping is only for half a day, and it is in regards to an issue that actually concerns their future!)
On a side note, It is a refreshing (and reassuring) thought when kids do care about the future, as it concerns their future very much.
