One Planet: March 15th International Day of Youth Climate Strikes

Mar 11, 2019

    

On March 15, thousands of youth climate activists on six continents will skip school and take to the streets to join the global "Youth Climate Strike." Students will raise awareness about the severity of climate crisis and demand lawmakers take action. 

In the last six months, students in several countries including Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, Uganda, and Thailand have skipped a day of school to demand bold action on climate change.
