International Climate Strike

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jun 5, 2019 12:44:13 PM

On Friday, May 24th, the third International Climate Strike of the year took place, with a whopping 1.4 million participants worldwide. As many of you know, the Climate Strike movement began with a young climate activist, Greta Thunberg. Greta began protesting for climate justice at the beginning of this “school year”, and her activism and passion has generated tremendous support and action among youth.

The ‘Fridays for Future Movement’ has taken off, gaining more support and spirit with every strike. 

As Greta said, “You’re never too small to make a difference”, and that is why last Friday, our Environmental Team, along with a few other passionate students travelled to the small town of Wolfville to join in on a protest. Each student took the time to create posters and signs to convey their personal messages and feelings on the subject. This was King’s-Edgehill’s first time attending one of the Climate Strikes, and it was a big success. Schools from all across the Valley came to show their support, and spread positive energy. It is truly incredible to unite a group of likeminded students, and watch them create a pathway to a renewable future.

Our future rests on the decisions we make now, the importance of climate action is monumental. Today’s leaders have left this crisis on the shoulders of the next generation.
