Demanding immediate action, students are taking part in climate strikes around the world, and on March 15, young activists in the U.S. will add their voices to the escalating #FridaysForFuture movement. It was bolstered in January by 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg, of Sweden, calling for the first global climate strike while attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Action in this country is being supported by such environmental groups as 350.org, Extinction Rebellion and the Sunrise Movement.

Recent climate strikes have taken place throughout Europe, Australia and elsewhere. A rally in Brussels on January 31 drew approximately 35,000 people.

Teen climate activist Jamie Margolin, the founder of This is Zero Hour, says that youth across the U.S. will “show our legislators that we need a ‘Green New Deal.’”
