1000 school pupils attend Edinburgh’s climate change protest at Scottish Parliament

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg nominated for Norway's Nobel Peace Prize

It's estimated that hundreds of thousands of students will take part.

In the United States, the strikes on Friday are planned in over 100 cities and 45 states.

In the wake of the October 2018 climate report, 15-year-old Swedish student Greta Thunberg put climate change firmly in the spotlight by striking from school to sit outside the country's parliament, kick-starting the movement in the process.

Thunberg was invited to address the UN Climate Conference in December and has been nominated by three Norwegian lawmakers for the Nobel Peace Prize.

On Friday, she spoke at a Stockholm demonstration.

"We just need to be telling youth to speak up and get educated about this, because their voice can really influence policy", said CU Boulder freshman Emilie Craig.

"I see myself in Greta Thunberg", Beijer said. "We are not going to accept this".

"We made a part of history and I'm so happy that we could bring this strike to Ann Arbor", said Kokhar, a senior. Good. We don't want to talk to them either.

Thousands attended Nelson climate change protests on the Cathedral steps. The measures include a law to require action that would limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, a shift away from fossil fuels and investment in post-carbon renewable energy.

Students worldwide are skipping class Friday to take to the streets to protest their governments' failure to take sufficient action against global warming. In Duesseldorf, some 2,000 schoolchildren paraded with a carnival float depicting a giant effigy of Thunberg with the words "Do something about the climate catastrophe at last", written along her raised arms.

Protesters including the Raging Grannies, as well Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility, Friends of the Columbia Gorge and high school students from the Portland Youth Climate Council, gathered in front of City Hall on Wednesday, March 13, to oppose the expansion of Zenith Terminals, which could increase the number of oil trains moving through Portland.
