Fridays for Future is a movement started by a Swedish teenager named Greta Thunberg. In 2018, she decided to skip school every Friday to protest outside the Swedish parliament. Why? She wanted to make sure leaders were doing enough to combat climate change. Her simple act of sitting with a sign saying “Skolstrejk för klimatet” (which means “School strike for climate” in English) caught a lot of attention. Soon, students from all over the world began to join her, also skipping school on Fridays to protest in their own cities and towns. They wanted their voices to be heard about the environment. The idea is simple: young people are showing they care about their future and the health of our planet. They are asking leaders to take urgent action to save the environment. So, every Friday, in many places around the world, you might see students holding signs, chanting, and urging for a cleaner, healthier world. And it all started with one brave girl’s decision to stand up for what she believed in.
