There is a growing movement amongst young people, inspired by the Swedish school girl Greta Thunberg, to put pressure on governments for increased action regarding climate change.

On Wednesday the 13th of February, 6A and the senior members of the Green Team joined a group of other schools to protest in front of the Dail. This protest, organised by Donabate and Portrane ETNS’ 6th Class and their teacher, was to highlight the problem of climate change and to address the lack of political will to address this topic in a substantive manner.

For many of the children, this was their first experience of political protesting …but we sense perhaps not the last!
