He has been helping lead student strikes at the B.C. Legislature on the first Friday of every month, and he's also been involved in organizing the March 15 action, where he will be featured as a youth speaker.

School strikes for the climate are now being planned in more than 80 nations.

They were inspired by 15-year-old student Greta Thunberg, who staged a lone strike for the climate in August outside the Swedish Parliament.

With climate change threatening their future, they ask how adults can truly say that the world is their oyster.

Even though the youth might not be in power, BHS junior Wyatt Rollins is glad that young people are leading the climate movement.

Students who cut class to join protests have been rebuked by politicians, including Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison who said previous year more learning and less activism was needed in schools.

"And our government refused to listen". I am frustrated about not learning enough about climate change in school. Despite that fact, most of us are not included in the local and global decision-making process.

The move - revealed in a letter from council chief Annemarie O'Donnell to Glasgow's Green MSP Patrick Harvie - represents a shift in the council's message from before the last youth climate strike.

Local groups including Byron Shire Climate Emergency Guidance Group, Zero Emissions Byron, COREM, Creative Mullumbimy, The Brunswick Valley Historical Society and Mullum SEED issued a statement of support for the students.

NSW Education Minister Rob Stokes had warned students and teachers against attending the rally saying, "the law is very clear, this is a notified school day, kids should be at school".

In the months since Thunberg began her weekly action, a contingent of like-minded climate activists has followed suit around the world.

A small number of parents had contacted Yeatman, but they were not in support of students missing class for the strike. But the one thing we need more than hope is action.

"I$3 absolutely understand and expect the next generation to raise what is the biggest issue facing them globally".

More than 40,000 people braved miserable conditions in Amsterdam on Sunday to protest against the Dutch government's action over climate change, organisers said.

"Now people are not debating whether we should do something".

A Frome student said, "I am scared about the future of the planet". Some people say that I should be in school instead.
