There is actually no point in going to school if our world is going to die,” said one student as she marched through the streets of Brussels.  On 24 January, more than 30,000 students participated in a demonstration for climate action in the capital of Belgium, organized by teenagers in response to Greta Thunberg’s statements at the UN Climate Conference in Poland in December of 2018. The march was supported by the Belgian Ministry of Education. Students called for stronger climate policy and immediate action.
