I stand in awe of 16-year old @GretaThunberg, who inspired thousands of youth across the globe to take to the streets and speak out during Friday’s #ClimateStrike.
"We deserve a safe future. And we demand a safe future.” – @GretaThunberg, climate activist.
Millions of people around the world, from New York to Paris, Nairobi, Seoul, Bangkok, Islamabad and Johannesburg, have taken part in a global protest, calling for climate action. pic.twitter.com/mttBta959y

As students return to classes on Monday, I’m betting they will be intently following the actions proposed by world leaders convening at the United Nations headquarters to confront a climate crisis. And I’m betting those world leaders will be acutely aware that youth across the globe will be holding them accountable.
With much appreciation for the efforts of over 4 million youth to save our planet. You have taken global citizenship to a whole new level. #UpstandersNotBystanders
