We must change ourselves.
Why should I study for a future that is not available?
To all of you out there: it’s time for civil disobedience. It’s time to rebel.
What you do now, we, the children, cannot change when we grow older.
Many say Sweden is a minor nation and that what we do does not matter. But if some school students can make world news just because we skipped school for a few days – imagine what we can accomplish if we all work in Togethernessship.
Every person counts. Just like any greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). Each SINGLE GHG kilo. Everything counts in large amounts. So, please treat the climate crisis as the emergency crisis it is and give us a

This is just the beginning.
Some said I should be in school. But why should any young person be made to study for a future when no one is doing enough to save that future? What is the point of learning when the most important facts given by the finest scientists are ignored by our politicians?
This is not a warning it’s an Alarm of the future of humanity.
Our leaders are behaving like children, turning parliaments into kindergarten schoolyards, we will have to take the responsibility they should have taken long ago,” she said. “We have to understand what the older generation has dealt to us, what mess they have created that we have to clean up and live with. We have to make our voices heard.
