Director of 10:10 Climate Action, Max Wakefield, said,
“The energy, diversity and power we’re seeing from young people is truly inspiring. Leaders now have a choice. On the one hand, immediate, transformational action on climate change. On the other, explaining to young people why they don’t deserve a future. The public also has a choice: whether to step up and take joint responsibility for demanding change. Only then could we expect these young people to go back to school. ”
Notes to editors
10:10 Climate Action have sent out a newsletter asking people to write to their local schools to explain why the'y’re backing the protests and ask that any young people joining them are not punished.
