We spoke with some of the young people who were in attendance at the Youth Climate Strike in New York City on Friday. Around the world, kids showed up to advocate for the future in dozens of cities, drawing awareness to the fact that our world might not have one if we don't take care of it.
Above, hear why the kids at the NYC strike are getting involved, and get inspired to protest yourself.
