These students can’t wait to lead

A 6 year old girl from the UK told her local town council that she wants to be a councillor when she grows up, but that if by the time she’s 18 we haven’t taken urgent sustained climate action, she may not live in a world where that is possible. That is how late we have left it, and how little our ‘leaders’ have led. As long as we’re not doing everything we can to secure a world our children can thrive in, why on Earth should they sit in school, waiting for us to grow up?

The world needs to listen

In the space of just 6 months, school children on every continent have organized themselves to demand climate action for their shared future. They are done waiting for the politicians who have failed to act their entire lives. Now the young have started to move, and stopped playing by the rules. Everything may be about to change, because for them it has to.

Young people: There is probably one closer to you than you think. If there isn’t one near you yet, start your own!
Less young people: Remember it's a student protest, and it's their message and voice needs to be front and centre, but solidarity is important. Let's show them we have their backs.
