Teen climate campaigner Greta Thunberg (16) nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Main Msida-Valletta Road To Close This Friday As Students Strike And March Against Climate Change

The Youth Climate Strike is supporting the Green New Deal, which is a series of proposed environmental policies that recently made headlines after U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., introduced a congressional resolution calling for the country to transition completely to renewable energy.

Whether or not your have heard of the "School Strike 4 Climate" before today, do you support your children, grandchildren or mokopuna if they choose to protest about climate change this Friday?

The movement is just one of dozens that will happen around the world, inspired by Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg, who has been holding weekly protests in front of Sweden's parliament since August 2018.

"If they're not panicking about the climate crisis, then they must not understand it", says Hutten. Adults are more than welcome to join us. Freddy André Ovstegard and two other Norwegian lawmakers chose Thunberg because of her leadership in the fight against climate change. Experts say Africa, with its population of more than 1 billion people, is expected to be hardest hit by global warming even though it contributes least to the greenhouse gas emissions that cause it.

The kids are again proving they give a shit.

I will be his ancestor very soon.

Ella Smith, from the group, said it was good the school was supporting the movement "because we are the future and we're the ones who can actually make a change now".

Myhre also wanted to convey a message to the youth climate activists.
