    “…People don’t know yet how things will turn out in 10 years, 20 years or a 100 years from now…But there are things we can do…to understand what the problem is…and how we can all play a role in solving it…[1] Students hope that by walking out of school with banners and megaphones, and getting together with other people who want things to change, that their voices will be heard. They want the politicians, those people who make the big decisions, to get together and come up with solutions…

And some people have to leave their homes and look for a safer place to live…To stop the world getting too hot, we have to change the way we live…[4]…[N]early everything we do in our daily life has an effect on the climate…[5] Everyone can make changes in their daily life that mean there will be less pollution. And while our choices alone aren't enough to fix the problem, they can help to convince companies and politicians to make bigger changes…” click here for more
