In the first worldwide climate action since the Covid-19 pandemic, the Global Climate Strike saw participation from over 99 countries as thousands of people supported the rally demanding government action on the climate crisis. This comes right before the COP26, scheduled in Glasgow within a month.
In Germany, Greta Thunberg announced to over 100,000 people that “no political party” was doing enough against climate change. Mexico, Bangladesh, parts of Europe, and South Africa too witnessed regular uprisings and activities related to climate change. Organizers of the global event said there were protests in more than 1,800 towns and cities around the world with large events in Europe, Africa, and North and South America.
