Sunshine Coast School Strike for the Climate
Show Notes

Inspired by fellow student, Sweden's Greta Thunberg, a group of Sunshine Coast students organized and staged a School Strike for the Climate at at Queensland's Perigian Beach.
More than 2000 people supported the impressive event; an event that was overflowing with youthful energy, commitment and passion.
However, it wasn't a "youth only" event as a large part of the big crowd were older people whose school years were long behind them, including many grandparents.
Demands on the day were clear, concise and easily rolled off the tongues of all those responsible for organizing the school strike and one of the principle aims, that of starting a conversation, was achieved with ease.
