ST. JOHN'S, N.L. —

Hundreds of high schools students from the St. John’s region are joining in an international protest against climate change this morning.

The students gathered at the MUN clock tower this morning for one of more than #FridaysForFuture 1,300 protests happening around the world today. The students then made their way to Confederation Building where they are lobbying government to adhere to the commitments made in the Paris Agreement to combat climate change internationally. 

The movement was founded by Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old from Sweden.
