Global Climate Strike

On September 20th millions of young people and environmental advocates took to the streets to protest global warming and greenhouse gas emissions. Estimated at four million people, in thousands of cities and towns, anxious people protested the lack of legitimate change from government. In Ann Arbor, hundreds of protesters flooded the streets with posters, music, and excitment. Are these protests legitimately helping cause change? Is there any other way in which people can help the planet? What are other good steps of action for demonstraters looking to instill change?  

Student Walk Out

To me, the most important part of this article is that the walk outs around the country were inspired by 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg. Climate change is such an important topic that some people don’t even believe is happening. The fact that a 16-year-old started the movement shows how change can happen from young students. This gets me thinking about how schools should help inspire their students to make change. If young students can activate change across the country, what else can we accomplish?
