This morning I went along to the Town Hall, in Bournemouth, to take photos of schoolchildren, students and parents protesting against climate change as part of Youth Strike 4 Climate’s worldwide protests.

This was an organised protest, and part of Youth Strike 4 Climate, an attempt to force politicians to tackle growing environmental problems.

Organisers said that action was planned in at least UK 60 towns and cities, from Cornwall to the Scottish Highlands.

The Youth Strike 4 Climate movement started in August 2018, when Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old schoolgirl, held a solo protest outside the Swedish parliament.

According to the Guardian newspaper, up to 70,000 schoolchildren across the world now hold protests each week in 270 towns and cities.
