Around 30,000 people march for climate in BrusselsFriday, 15 March 2019 16:00
This massive mobilisation for the climate is of an unprecedented scale and has been taking place all over the globe after a call to arms from Swedish activist Greta Thunberg.
"We are facing the greatest existential crisis that humanity has known and yet it continues to deny," said Thunberg, speaking in Stockholm before thousands of students.
The 16-year-old believes that the climate crisis is the responsibility of previous generations. "We have not contributed to this situation. We were born in and have to spend our entire existence to the experience," she says. "That's why we manifest. And we will continue to do so."
"In principle, everything must change. The way we respond to this crisis, our lifestyle and the way our economy works we must address the issue as a crisis Currently, the climate is considered important, among other things. We must rid ourselves of that attitude," she said in an interview with public broadcaster SVT.
