School strike for climate, also known in various regions as Fridays for the Future, Youth for climate or Youth strike 4 climate, is a growing international movement of children and students leaving their school to take part in demonstrations for climate action.
"The first school strike for climate was started by Greta Thunberg staging an action outside the Swedish Riksdag (parliament), holding a sign that read "Skolstrejk för klimatet" or "school strike for climate" during August 2018."
