Young people all over the world are rallying for the climate today, as over 4,638 events are planned to occur in over 139 countries. The strikes are inspired by Greta Thunberg's Fridays for Future movement, which has gained support from students worldwide. The marches aren't just for students; activists say "We feel a lot of adults haven't quite understood that we young people won't hold off the climate crisis ourselves," Thunberg and a group of organizers say, "Sorry if this is inconvenient for you," they said. "But this is not a single-generation job. It's humanity's job." •
Local governments have shown their support for the movement, especially in New York City, with 1.1 million students being allowed to skip class and participate.
Australia- Early numbers say over 400,000 are attending climate strikes.
