On March 15, in roughly 112 different countries, students around the world skipped class, the majority of them college students. Their reason was to urge the politicians of their own country to start taking action about climate change. They were mainly fighting for fewer emissions of greenhouse gases. This protesting ide started when 16-year-old Greta Thunberg started camping outside the parliament building of Sweden denouncing the Swedish Government’s lackluster action in fighting climate change. Sweden has been a part of the Paris Climate Accords which bounds them to take action against climate change. The actual action in the accord is supposed to start in 2020, but Thunberg argues that Sweden has not prepared to make these reductions on greenhouse gas emissions. This protest shows one thing that Millennials definitely care about and are concerned about, and that is a changing climate.
