A climate change protest was started by a 16-year-old girl called Greta Thunberg. Greta is Swedish, and it all started when she started skipping school on Fridays to give out flyers to raise awareness about climate change. She protested in front of the Swedish government buildings. Finally, she managed to make a speech in front of all of the world leaders. She called out kids to make a difference and that started something called #FRIDAYSFORFUTURE. That is why I am here.
We organised a walkout (assembly) instead of a protest because it is more controlled and instead of us holding up banners and causing a ruckus, I taught the school about this problem.
