Eleven-year-old takes the climate issue to the Echuca public
Show Notes

Pixie Brain first thought the warming of the world was caused by the sun moving closer to the Earth, but now she knows it is the result of changes to our atmosphere; changes brought about largely by our (that's humans) flagrant use of fossil fuels.
The 11-year-old Grade five pupil from the Echuca East Primary School first learned about the "School Strike for Climate" when her mother pointed out what Swedish teenager, Greta Thunberg was up to.
It all began when her mother asked her if that is what she would like to do and so an inspired then went to Bendigo to be a part of one actually happening.
Pixie's Friday, September 20, 11:00 am event will be held in Echuca's Alton Reserve, after which the participants will then march down the city's main street and then to the office of the Nationals Member for Murray Plains, Peter Walsh, in High St, where Pixie says she will deliver a message to the MP.
