On Friday, the 27th of September, 2019, young people from around the world took to the streets to participate in one of the largest global climate protests in history. The strike was initiated by a teenager from Sweden named Greta Thunberg. Greta has demanded immediate climate action along with a change in the attitude towards the crisis. Together with her supporters, she inspired global protests that took place during the UN Climate Action Summit.
The Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism students at ICP covered the events that took place at Foley park in New York City as part of their first assignments for their Visual Journalism class.
