Millions of children walk for climate change

Millions of children around the world have taken part in a global climate change protest.

The protest is thought to be the biggest protest ever.

Protestors from over 150 different countries have taken part in demonstrations. The aim is to put pressure on MP’s, governments and councils to do more about climate issues.

Lots of children all over the world think that adults, politicians and big companies aren’t doing enough to tackle climate change, and they want their voices to be heard.

The strikes are taking place before the United Nations Climate Change Summit.
