What will be their future on a warming planet?

Students at Oak Knoll School in Menlo Park were among the estimated tens of thousands of Bay Area students who participated in the Global Climate Strike on Friday, Sept. 20.

While many high school and other older students took to the streets, the Oak Knoll action took place on campus during the lunch hour. The children carried signs they made earlier, and rallied on the school grounds until returning to their classrooms.

The elementary school students also wrote letters to government officials, expressing their concerns about the worsening threat of climate change and what it means for their future.

People all over the world participated in the action, organized by a group of young people that includes Swedish teenager and climate activist Greta Thunberg, who spoke at the climate strike in New York City.

According to media reports, Global Climate Strike actions were planned in 150 countries, including 800 in the U.S.
