Schoolchildren go on strike over climate change policy

Tom Elliott

Schoolchildren have protested Australia’s inaction on climate change.

The movement, sparked by a petition on Change.org, saw students take a day off school to protest outside Bill Shorten’s office in Moonee Ponds.

One student, Callum Briggsoot, told Tom Elliott he did it to demonstrate that it’s an issue we need to take action on now.

Callum, 11, said his teachers were supportive of him missing a day of school for it.
