  • Global Climate Strike Students demand action against climate change

"We should be incredibly grateful and appreciative of their bravery", said Mr Quaschning, one of more than 23,000 German-speaking scientists to sign a letter of support this week. And in the coming year, and particularly in our 2020 election coverage, the Guardian will strive to feature the voices of young people in our climate reporting to ensure that those whose lives will be most affected by climate policy over the next century are part of the conversation.

With strikes planned in at least 168 USA cities and towns here, mostly progressive communities, a handful of them like that set up by Kerr stand out for taking place deep in oil country.

There's an urgency to the movement. The country is vulnerable to rising sea levels and rapid desertification. Droughts and water shortages will be more severe, and coral reefs may disappear completely.

Another bluntly stated "We're running out of time".

"You are the reason why climate change is at the front of the political debate", Rep. Mark Pocan said.

Young people in countries around the world are expected to take part in the event urging action on climate change. Now, Coleman's feeling the pressure of the 11-year deadline. She said, "I am honoured and very grateful for this nomination".

Some politicians have criticised the students, suggesting they should be spending their time in school, not on the streets.

"Climate change isn't something you can fix from one day to another".

Strikers like Gomez are pushing for tangible action, like the adoption of the Green New Deal.

Which Scottish areas will see school strikes?

"This is my future". "Thousands of us have taken to the streets in the past weeks all around the world".

"When the air we breathe is under attack, we stand up and we fight back", another went.

This is a famous award given to people who have done a lot to try and help the world. "All we have to do is to wake up and change".

"It's no longer enough to say Republicans aren't taking climate change seriously", said Rep. Raúl Grijalva, the Democratic chair of the House Natural Resources Committee where Bishop is the ranking member, in a statement on Thursday.

On Friday, she spoke at a Stockholm demonstration. By 10:20AM, they're on the move. Last month thousands of United Kingdom students took to the streets to protest climate change.

The Greater Victoria Teachers' Association says it supports students and will allow one teacher from each high school to attend. "Power comes from the people, so if we start rallying, then change is going to happen".

The looming deadline is a common refrain among the marchers in San Francisco.

Young demonstrators hold placards as they protest around the Queen Victoria Memorial (QVM) during the "Global Strike 4 Climate" protest march, outside of Buckingham Palace in central London on March 15, 2019.

"We are living through an existential crisis that has been ignored for decades and if we do not act now it may be too late", the 16-year-old told Swedish public television station SVT. Find out about the action near you and get involved.

About 2000 turned out for the protest at Holyrood.
