This week on World Ocean Radio we discuss the many ways that climate change is becoming part of the larger conversation around the world, entering into educational systems and curriculum, and calling young people to activism and demand for change around the globe.

Youth Climate Strikes (aka Fridays for Future, Youth for Climate) is an international activist movement born of one teenager's staged protests each Friday outside of Sweden's parliament building in August 2018. Greta Thunberg began striking for climate and now students participate in mass demonstrations each year. The next Youth Climate Rally is scheduled for April: three days of striking to launch the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 24th. Learn more.
