Taiwanese kids join global strike to push action on climate change  (2019/03/15)

Groups of Taiwanese children played hooky today to ask grown-ups to do more to address climate change. They joined a global strike movement initiated last year by a Swedish teenager who sat outside her country's parliament each week on Friday. Today in Taiwan, students said global warming was an important issue that was being ignored. One 12-year-old boy from Taichung made the trip to Taipei to lodge his appeal directly to central government.

Sixth grader Yang Tzu-ching from Taichung was joined by his family as he staged a silent strike outside the Presidential Office building. His sign read: "Why study for a future, which may not be there?" His plea was for the government to squarely face up to the threat of climate change.

Student
Although nuclear power can be considered safe, we should not use it in Taiwan because Taiwan sits on fault lines. One major earthquake and it will be like Fukushima. Taiwan has abundant sunshine and plenty of tidal activity for the development of renewable energy.

He is one of several Taiwanese children who have joined "Fridays for Future," a global movement of children calling for action amid climate change.

Students and teachers sit in silent protest, holding up placards with their slogans. So far over 10 youth strikes have taken place across Taiwan.

Greta Thunberg
Founder of Fridays for Future
I am protesting about the climate crisis, because it's such an important issue, and no one is doing anything - nothing is happening. So I must do what I can.

"Fridays for Future" is the brainchild of 16-year-old Greta Thunberg of Sweden. To encourage adults to face up to climate change, she launched the student strike movement last August and began sitting outside the Swedish parliament in silent protest. Since then, the movement has spread to students in more than 100 countries worldwide, and has earned her a nomination for Nobel Peace Prize.

“核電雖然它算是安全,可是我們不該在台灣發展,因為台灣在斷層帶,地震的時候會像廣島一樣。台灣日照是充足的,潮汐也夠,足以發展再生能源。”

這場號稱史上最大規模的「全球氣候罷課」,台灣學子也以實際行動參與。

師生舉牌靜坐,像這樣多達10個青年氣候行動,在台灣各地登場。

“我抗議氣候變遷,因?是非常重要的議題,沒有人在處理,所以我需盡我全力做。”

這場氣候變遷罷課"Fridays for Future"的發起人,格雷塔‧桑伯格,是一名16歲瑞典少女。為了讓”成年人”正視氣候變遷議題,她從去年八月開始提倡,每週五在議會前靜坐抗議。如今全球有超過一百個國家的學子響應,格雷塔‧桑伯格也因此被提名”諾貝爾和平獎”。
