Because there “is no Planet-B”
They rightly declare each Friday
The young and their allies know what’s a stake
This is a climate emergency
“Climate-related events that really gave me hope were the UK Youth Climate School Strikes.” says Youth Climate Summit Ambassador Chara. “Seeing so many people come together to fight for our planet and seeing and participating in an event almost solely organised by the youth gave me such hope. Which is a feeling often lacking when discussing the topic of climate change.”
Recently, many young people have maintained their ‘Friday’s For Future’ climate strikes, staging them online due to coronavirus lockdowns. In response to pressure from youth groups and others, the governments of some countries have declared a climate emergency. However, since doing so, almost all of those have been criticised for a lack of effective action.
