Greta Thunberg Stages Global Fridays for Future Climate Change Protest in Sweden
Climate change activist Greta Thunberg kicked off a school strike on Friday. It’s part of a worldwide movement called Fridays for Future. The 17-year-old wants the protest to raise awareness of global warming and the policies and practices that contribute to climate change. "The main hope is, as always, to try to have an impact on the level of awareness and public opinion so that people will start becoming more aware of the climate crisis," Thunberg told reporters.
