School children strike for action against climate change, led by 13 year-old activist

Over 500 students from all schools marched from Casemates to No.6 Convent place on Friday morning, to take part in a global strike for climate change.

'Fridays for future' is a campaign which has taken place in over 100 countries.

Friday's event saw the students miss the first half of the morning in school to protest the issue.

"GibSchool Strike for Climate change" was led by 13 year-old Westside student Iona Sacarello, who handed in a petition to the Chief Minister with calls for action.
