Just last year, Greta Thunberg drew the world’s eye to her protests that were aiming to raise awareness of the risks posed by climate change as well as holding politicians accountable for their inactivity during the climate crisis.

Global Climate Strike is an international event encouraging everyone to take part in changing the world for the better by raising awareness on how urgent these climate issues are and drawing the attention of those who choose to remain passive.

Others… well, they used their creative and artistic talents to show what’s on their mind. So scroll down below and check out the best ones.
