March 15th, a Global Climate Strike will took place in over 98 countries; 1325 places around the world. People from Schools, University's, work places and more will walk out and march, to let politicians know they are not happy with the way our world is heading. Here at ECOCEAN, we support the School Strike for Climate.
"In Australia, education is viewed as immensely important, and a key way to make a difference in the world. But simply going to school isn’t doing anything about climate change. And it doesn’t seem that our politicians are doing anything, or at least not enough, about climate change either. So, as our contribution to the changes we want to see, we are striking from school. We are temporarily sacrificing our education in order to save our futures from climate wrecking projects like the Adani coal mine."
The activist behind this movement? Greta Thunberg, a 16 year old girl from Sweden with Asperger's.
"Where is the point in studying for my future, if climate change takes away my opportunity to have one...we already have all the solutions, we just need to wake up and make a change"
