Across Europe, children, high school students, and university students are taking to the streets to demand more ambitious action on climate change. Young people in Sweden and Belgium are joined by young people in Germany, the UK, France, and others who recognize they will have to bear the consequences of today’s (lack of) political actions, actions on which they only have limited direct influence. This week’s pick takes a closer look at the issue these youngsters have put at the centre of the debate.

“Intergenerational justice might have not received the recognition it deserves in the climate discourse so far, but the kids protesting in the streets today are telling us loudly and clearly that this needs to change.”
