Greta Thunberg and School Strike

Greta Thunberg, a 16 years old Swedish Environmental Activist has been conducting School Strikes demanding the stoppage of fossil fuels use and climate justice. He began her protest in August 2018. Since then she has been widely covered by the media and got her the global recognition. 

She used to skip going to school and instead stayed outside of the Swedish Parliament trying to pressurize them for strongly act upon the global climate change. Soon after, more students joined her and later, it turned out to be a global environmental campaign as well. It was commonly known as “Fridays For Future”.

In her protest, she demanded that the Swedish Government should be reducing the Carbon Emission as per the understanding mentioned in the Paris Agreement. The reason why she began the protest is because she says that the adults who are supposed to be the caretakers have become ignorant and are doing nothing to protect the environment.

Millions of students throughout the globe are inspired by Greta’s work. A lot of them have changed their lifestyles in a way which result in lesser carbon footprint. An example can be transitioning into veganism and opting public transport over private vehicles.

“ANIMALS ARE FRIENDS, NOT FOOD!”. This was very striking. One of the prime reasons why we are in the 6th phase of mass extinction is also because of global warming. And the animal farming is the biggest contributor for that. Maybe a high time that we stop the consumption of meat?
