Students to join worldwide climate change protests

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg attends a protest rally in Hamburg Germany Friday

Tens of thousands of students across the country are planning to skip school and attend climate change protests on Friday, according to multiple reports. They say the Swedish 16-year-old "speaks for them", and shows that even students living in a small country can have a global impact.

The New Jersey students have formed a coalition called the NJ Youth Climate Strike to organize its efforts.

"Students around the world are calling politicians to action - we have a responsibility to listen to them and respond", Ardern said.

"So obviously, overall, there has been some resistance, but I think the people who really understand the urgency of the issue is behind us today". We'll be walking from the University of Malta to the Parliament building in Valletta, to raise awareness on our future and our planet!

"We are the people who are going to be most affected by climate change so it's up to us to have the biggest voice and emphasise to our politicians that it's our future that's at stake".

"They talk about our age, our looks and so on", she continued.

Local high school students plan to participate in the Global Youth Climate Strike on Friday, March 15, at 10 am.

A homemade poster of Greta Thunberg adorns her bedroom wall, as does the homemade placard that she brought on a recent children's rally on climate action.

In addition to being featured on TIME's list of the 25 Most Influential Teens of 2018, Greta was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by three Norwegian MPs who announced the nomination this week.

"I just thought that nothing is happening and no one is doing anything to fight climate change", she told CBSN.

Greta Thunberg has been nominated as a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize.

"We have proposed Greta Thunberg because if we do nothing to halt climate change it will be the cause of wars, conflict and refugees", said Norwegian Socialist MP Freddy André Øvstegård.

After the news of her nomination broke, Thunberg took to Twitter to say she was "honoured and very grateful for this nomination".
