In Germany, protesters are also demanding a rapid exit from coal mining.

"Just tell them the truth" about the science, and the perils of climate change, Thunberg said.

Yes, it's having some impact. The human rights charity recognised the Swedish teenager, and the Fridays for Future Movement, for their contribution towards bringing people's attention to the consequences of climate change. "The whole point of this movement is that it is youth-led", Weaver says. People have responded by organizing strikes, demonstrations, and other actions in 150 countries.

Where are they taking place?

Depending on your location, Climate Strike events might be taking place throughout the week, too. None were involved in organizing Friday's rally, though past student climate strikes have occurred locally. The following map shows their location on every continent, including Antarctica.

How do I get to these demos? And I want you to unite behind the science.

The strikes are being supported by dozens of organizations.

On Monday, Fridays for Future called on everyone in Germany to take part in the demos.

"Don't invite us here to just tell us how inspiring we are without actually doing anything about it because it doesn't lead to anything". But first, the federal, state and local governments and all businesses must take seriously the threats from the climate crisis.
