"That is just not the case Keep challenging all of us with the work that you're doing", the 38-year-old leader added. "None of this would have happened without all the channels of the global environmental community".

"Most of the students striking on Friday can not vote".

Despite gaining an global spotlight, the strike is not a top priority for Burlington High School (BHS) students.

My daughter in law, Laura Turner Seydel, signs off every email with the Native American proverb: We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. Fridays for Future has declared a Global Climate Strike for Future on March 15, making Neupert and Matlerre's strike one of 1,325 gatherings in 98 countries as of last night, according to a tweet from Thunberg.

"Climate change affects the people that contribute the least to it."

The poster goes on to state: "With less than 12 years to prevent runaway climate change, the situation is becoming desperate". There is also representation from a range of diverse disciplinary specialisations we need to draw on to tackle how we change the way we live to reduce climate change: from climate science, engineering, biomedical science, to music, art and product design, political science and ecology. To Noor, the "we" means youth.

In an open letter published in The Guardian newspaper, a group of youth-led climate activists called climate change "the biggest threat in human history" and said young people will no longer accept the inaction of world leaders.

Logan Park pupil Linea Simons said it was frustrating many people did not know the extent of the crisis.

Bernardeschi partners Ronaldo ahead of Dybala for Atletico
Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone says there won't be any underestimating Juventus in tonight's Champions League clash. Ref Bjorn Kuipers decided Ronaldo had kicked the ball out of Oblak's hands and the goal was chalked off.

Jacqueline Kohler, a chemistry teacher at BHS believes that addressing climate change is crucial in the social landscape today.

"In Jacinda Ardern, we have a Prime Minister who has identified climate change as her generation's "nuclear free moment" and the urgency that that statement implies is particularly relevant to the students who will be taking to the streets on Friday".

Kohler supports youth activism and says it encourages society to understand issues and make intelligent decisions that will benefit humankind.

It is evident amongst my peers at school that we feel let down by our current government. At the 2019 World Economic Forum in Davos, she sternly told world leaders, "I don't want you to be hopeful".

Vivanco acknowledges that missing school is bad, but reasons that one day of school is small compared to the future which she could be protesting for.

"It is unusual for such a wide range of experts to agree on a common cause, but when it comes to climate change we all acknowledged that we need to listen to the voices of young people and take urgent action". Strikes are planned for Friday in Boulder, Denver, Fort Collins and Parker, joining some 700 similar actions across 71 countries.

Although Vivanco expresses support for the strike, she admits that she was not informed of it.
