Thousands of students have protested every Friday since then, demanding politicians take action to hit the 2015 Paris Agreement goal of keeping global warming to below 2 degrees Celsius and preserve the planet for the future generations. So to anybody saying that youth voices aren't as intelligent or as important as those who have maybe higher education than us, to that I say we've had over two million (students) go on strike and it caused quite a ruckus just from walking out of school. Additionally, there are over 2,500 climate strikes registered around the world.

Tomorrow (Friday) morning, Burlington City Hall will be one of more than 3,500 event locations for the Global Climate Strike.

Sir Mark is a vocal advocate for action against climate change.

It includes a call for students to leave school and others to leave their workplaces to take part. We also can't encourage student participation in such events.

The strike will be the third run this year by School Strike 4 Climate New Zealand, giving school pupils a chance to express their anger and frustration over climate inaction at a governmental and systemic level, where substantial and profound change is made.

"We really recognize our students" rights of self-expression and freedom of speech", said Robinson.

With the expectation that some students will either not show up or walk out of class Friday, Ann Arbor Public Schools sent a letter to parents informing them students may only be excused from school with parental permission in advance of an off-campus event. "This isn't just one climate strike, it's a continuation of a movement that has begun to gain leverage as concepts like the Green New Deal and divestment become mainstream". "There may be consequences that arise, but in the end, I think that it matters even more than missing a single day of school".

"They are starting to take action".

Quebec Premier Francois Legault said he wouldn't be on hand, but the province's environment minister, Benoit Charette, and another elected member of the Coalition Avenir Quebec team would take part.

Koehnline, also a coordinator with an organization called March For Our Lives, said he planned to encourage as many students as possible to join him during the walkout.

The Commission Scolaire de Montreal, Quebec's largest school board, has cancelled classes on September 27, calling it an "exceptional gesture" stemming from its desire to support awareness of the climate emergency.

Extinction Rebellion Mass Day of Civil Disobedience Monday, September 23 Members of climate activist group Extinction Rebellion will hold "a fun and creative low risk non-violent direct action in downtown Denver" to raise awareness of the climate crisis and its impact on vulnerable populations.
