She has since been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

A special report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change last year warned that aims to keep global warming under 1.5C were off track and there remained 12 years to rectify the situation.

Create a department within the Environment Bureau where a group of people are explicitly charged with overseeing climate action, with the inclusion of a 'Climate Action Officer.' We believe that establishing such a role and group in charge will give climate change the attention it deserves and drive bigger climate initiatives.

"All schools are showing their support; we have been getting messages from everywhere - from Thornhill to the Tech - and there are even people travelling from Omagh to show their support".

He said: "I've been aware of the issues surrounding climate change for a long time but didn't realise the seriousness of the situation".

Campaigners said 15,000 people took part in protests in more than 60 towns and cities across the United Kingdom in February.

Protesters call for the mayor to make an appearance from Seymour Square, opposite the Marlborough District Council building.

It follows a similar protest in November, and was inspired by 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg, who has been protesting outside of the Swedish parliament every Friday since September.

"Everyone can do their little part of the world, look after it, and the at some stage the world will be lovely again, Meeten said".

Former Liverpool defender Nicol labels Bayern performance ‘atrocious’
Mane was a thorn in the Bavarians' side for most of the night, and his first goal was of the highest quality. He was involved in the goal of Bayern as well, so what a night.

Blenheim retirees Coral and Tony Thiel, who teach jazz to Marlborough Boys' College students twice a week, said the strike was "a wonderful thing".

Willetton Senior High School student Ryan Hunt, 13, said he was striking to save the world.

School spokeswoman Dana Smith said parents are urged to discuss the protest with their children.

"We want our government to understand that there is no planet B", says Rand Abounahia, another one of the strike organizers.

In an example of protest cross-pollination, Thunberg says she was inspired by the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, who organized the March for Our Lives, which drew around 2 million people in March 2018.

"Young people are deeply anxious and we want our voices heard. The combination of persuasive social media and a noteworthy subject will lead to different perspectives in our diverse community", the letter from the principal, obtained by HKFP, said.

"The flood we just had wasn't just a normal flood, it was a one-in-100-year event".

While some politicians have criticized the students, saying they should be spending their time in school and not on the streets, scientists have backed the protests, with thousands signing petitions in support of the students in Britain, Finland and Germany.
