The Youth Climate Strike Is Here, and So Are All These Incredibly Moving Signs
On Friday, March 15, students in over 50 countries around the world skipped school to protest global leaders and their failure to take action to prevent climate change. The strikes are inspired by 16-year-old Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg and the Fridays For the Future movement she started — and was eventually nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for — back in 2018.
In an effort to bring awareness to the current climate crisis, students and adults alike took to the streets to participate in the Youth Climate Strike on Friday morning, and as always, there were some pretty powerful signs in attendance. Read on to see some of the best and most moving signs from the protests.
