Thunberg, 16, launched the Fridays for Future school walkout movement about a year ago and gained worldwide attention for a speech at the 2018 United Nations climate summit. "We need to do more". A voice rang out from a megaphone as the rally set out from Victoria Park and made its way down Spring Garden Road.
At UBC, faculty members that cancel classes in support of the climate action were asked to inform students in advance. High school students, community college students, San Diego locals and activists, such as the San Diego Audubon Society and SanDiego350 marched to call for action on climate.
"I feel confident that we're not going to have the same world ten years from now", 9th-grade student Emma English said. Meanwhile, in Vancouver, more than 10,000 people are expected to join the city's mass climate strike.
"She stood out there by herself to start it all". She says it won't be her last. "If you look around I see them all and they are getting on board". "It's the most reliable and cost-effective source of power", White said. "So we are out to do what we can".
"A lot of these young people plug in their iPhones at night".
"I'm here to fight for my future, for the future my grandchildren for my great-grandchildren, and anyone who is on this planet, all living beings", says Gilbert. "I am hoping with our activities we can encourage a transformative change".
One of the very interesting things about Greta's climate activism is that she walks the walk. See Thunberg's reaction to the remix down toward the bottom of this post.
"Giving our thousands of staff the time to get out there and demand bold action is a no brainer", Lush Cosmetics North America President and CEO Mark Wolverton said in a statement.
"I don't understand why grown-ups would choose to mock children and teenagers for just communicating and acting on the science when they could do something good instead", Thunberg said Friday at rally in Montreal. South Asia depends heavily on water from the Himalayan glaciers that are under threat from climate change.
The latter referenced Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg's powerful address to the Climate Action Summon in NY on Monday, when she thundered "how dare you" at world leaders over inaction on climate change.
