Have you heard about the climate strike?
It’s slated to take place on September 20th through the 27th, with more than 2,500 separate events scheduled across 117 different countries.
If that’s all you’ve heard about it so far, you may be wondering who has the ability to organize such a large global event. Was it a national government? A huge nonprofit? The United Nations?!
Nope, it’s kids.
The youth who are set to inherit the environmental mess that previous generations have made over decades will be walking out of schools on September 20th and demanding urgent action on climate change.
