School Strike for Climate

by Nel Yomtov
Illustrated by Fern Cano

In August 2018, a teenager named Greta Thunberg missed school to sit outside the Swedish parliament with a sign that read School Strike for Climate. She was demanding that government leaders take stronger action against climate change due to global warming. At first, Greta sat alone. But her message spread. Other students joined her in the movement that became known as Fridays for Future. By September 2019, millions of activists from around the world marched in protests to protect the future of the planet.

Booklist - Angela Leeper

"Using a graphic-novel format with artwork that reflects the time period, the books combine action-packed scenes with chunked text that gives background information on the rise of the protest, its leader, and the movement's impact on national or world history." - Booklist
