The group has spawned a host of climate change activists and protests globally, including the Sunrise Movement, Zero Hour, Youth for Climate and #FridaysForFuture demonstrations…[The global youth climate movement is growing and research] shows that when children become concerned about global warming, their parents start to care more too…

    …[The response] to 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, who started the School Strike for Climate, has been massive…[and] the Sunrise Movement’s occupation of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s office and push for stronger climate change action has sparked tremendous interest among Democrats…[Generally, policy change becomes more likely] if between 5% and 7% of a population become active…Whether this activism will be maintained as this generation grows older is still very much in question…[But many say Gen Z] is fighting for their lives…” click here for more
