On September 20th, people of all ages, races, religions and genders joined together all around the world to take part in protests and marches for climate change.

On Friday, September 20, children and youth all around the world led numerous marches and protests demanding that more action be taken to fix the climate crisis. Hundreds of thousands in every continent participated in these marches, according to The New York Times. 

During the marches young people spoke in hopes that their governments would hear them. The common idea behind these marches  was that the next generation deserves a chance to live out their lives fully, and that the older generations need to help fix the damage that they have caused. Senior Paige Bolton thinks the protests are a good idea for tackling climate change, but that there is still more work to be done. 

“Protesting is good because at least it brings some sort of awareness to climate change,” Bolton said. “Sadly, a lot of times protests are overlooked and the government turns a blind eye.”

Junior Lyrik Stay also believes that the government will need more motivation before they begin to take action towards climate change. 

“I don’t think the government is going to take action just because of a couple of protests,” Stay said. “If we want to motivate the government we need to get more people involved and really make our voices heard.”

These protests are the best current effort towards action for climate change. Although these protests are nowhere close to changing the minds of all government officials across the world, the youth hopes that they will spark true discussions about solutions to the climate crisis.
