"In Zürich we have it good," says Sophie (16), Sekschülerin from the circle of four. "Our plastic ends up in the sea and not in the lake of Zurich."
Nilay makes a lesson in the old-age home. He wrote a request to the Board, to the Demonstration to attend, and got the whole day free. "I feel helpless. We are Young rarely have the opportunity to do something for the climate," he says.
"Why are we supposed to be in school and heal the world play when in front of us the world is broken?", ask Nono. His Generation, he do not Worry, but to his children and their descendants. Then, a new spell for him. "Nike is cool, but d environmental Japanese Horny", scribbles it on a paper.

With their parents they had intense discussions, especially about the need to less the car. The sorting of waste, and little meat to eat, projects of the WWF support. So you today are for the environment.

The Talk on the Polyterrasse is over. The demonstrators are off and running. Young people on Loudspeakers the slogans: "We are here, we are loud because they are stealing our future." A mother came in with her child in the Trailers, and rolled out to the Central down.
"I think in the evening from time to time about our terrible dealing with the climate," says Sekschüler Viktor from type. When he saw on the Internet pictures of chicken factory farms, or glacier comparisons, he would get scared. He makes a year a "No-Waste-to-month," in which he takes no plastic and no meat eating. With a policy he knows is not good, but he wanted to make them more environmentally friendly. "With any agreement," says Viktor.
