During the torsdagseftermiddagen listed the web page Fridaysforfuture, which collects the movement as a 16-year-old Greta Thunberg laid the foundation for in August 2018, approximately 1.600 planned klimatstrejker which is scheduled to take place during the Friday, march 15. The demonstrations are expected to take place in over 100 countries from canadian Inuvik to Rio Gallegos in Argentina.
when DN earlier in march mapped out the planned strikes amounted to the figure to more than 700 strikes in 60 countries. Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, it is not in Sweden as the majority of strikes are organised, 197 is planned in Germany and 210 in France. In Sweden prepared manifestations in 114 cities, from Gällivare in the north to Trelleborg in the south.
the Manifestations, which take the form of a skolstrejk, is not uncontroversial. Among other things, the Stockholm schools have gone out with those who want to participate in the manifestations need to apply for leave.
"It is positive that young people engage in an important issue, it bodes well for the future, but Friday is a regular school day," says Lee Orberson, grundskolechef in the city of Stockholm, to DN on Wednesday.
A majority of the demonstrations taking place in Europe, but a look at the map shows that skolstrejkerna will take place on all the earth's continents except Antarctica. Among other things, on the island of Mauritius, Uzbekistan and Vanuatu are planned demonstrations on Friday.
the Purpose of the demonstrations is to highlight the climate issue as it is taken to mean that the adult world has not taken seriously. The exact objectives are formulated slightly different depending on each of which the strikes take place. Greta Thunberg himself, who is the inspiration for the worldwide demonstrations, have demanded, among other things by the EU to educe their emissions by 80 per cent by 2030. Common is, however, a requirement that the so-called paris agreement signed in 2015, should be followed. To DN has Greta Thunberg said that she would not sit inside with the solutions, but the important thing is to get the politicians to follow the set climate targets.
