Greta Thunberg and the School Strike for Climate movement

Whether or not your students are taking part in the School Strike for Climate on March the 15th.  This is a great opportunity to explore the reasons for the strike and look at the young girl, Greta Thurnberg who has started this global movement.

Greta, as an introverted and autistic 15 year old was so frustrated with the lack of action in her country, she felt needed to do something to get people to listen. Inspired by Rosa Parks, she knew that one person could make a difference.
