Abstract

In this essay, we focus on the climate strike movement as an example of how young people are changing the world. We argue that this movement is more than a protest movement that demands environmental policies for a sustainable world. It is also, vitally, a global cultural exchange, in which young people and others exchange ideas, sentiments and solidarities. The climate strikes, we argue, are a movement in which young people and their allies share transformative visions for a new and better world. In this essay, we explore the practices of this remarkable movement.
