The movement follows on from 16-year-old Greta Thunberg’s actions. She refused to go to school on Fridays in her home country of Sweden until more was done to fight climate change.

Now protestors will be joined by teachers, lecturers and scientists – and there’ll be marches across the world, with thousands in dozens of Swiss towns.
