"We want the Labor Party and the Liberal Party to stop Adani, not allow any new fossil projects to be set up, and commit to 100 per cent renewables by 2030", she says. The group, NJ Youth Climate Strike is hosting a climate strike from 12 pm to 1:30pm at Morristown Town Hall.

"School students have every right to call our decision-makers to account by striking for a safe climate".

It was a complex project but one that was absolutely worth it.

It got nearly a new life as many youngsters joined along with more than 25,000 posts already on Instagram alone. His post has since been shared over 325,000 times on Facebook and thousands of others have been joining in.

These young people have paid attention and informed themselves about how little time we have left to do something about climate change.

"And our government refused to listen". So instead of looking for hope, look for action. While led by young people themselves, there are plenty of parents, teachers and others supporting their action and involvement. Young people are uniting around the world in a coordinated demand for their leaders to take radical action to curb greenhouse gas emissions and slow down the impacts of climate change.

The strike past year drew the ire of PM Scott Morrison who implored children to stay in school. What is your response to these comments?
