The Guardian’s 11-minute climate takeover will draw attention to student climate activism
The Guardian will also host 24 hours of live coverage of the student climate strikes, following the protests across countries and time zones, from our newsrooms in Australia, Europe and North America.
The climate strikes are expected to be one of the largest environmental protests in history, with planned events in at least 100 countries.
The Guardian US today will join tens of thousands of American students in raising awareness about the climate crisis by devoting its entire homepage to climate coverage.
Students are expected to join a global wave of school climate strikes to protest against government inaction on climate change. In addition to action in all 50 states and a major protest at the US Capitol building in Washington DC, students will stage an 11-minute school walkout at 11am EST
