Tens of thousands of teenagers are protesting across Europe this month wanting stronger global climate action. The movement, which began in Sweden, was sparked by teenage girls, and is said to be slowly making its way to the U.S. The group set up to organize the school walkouts in Belgium, Youth for Climate, has said the students will be continuing these actions. Various walkout movements across Europe are coordinating and are aiming for a global climate protest on 15 March, which could see extensive walkouts across that continent, and possibly extend to North America.
