Global Climate Strike: 16 photos from student march to Chorley Town Hall
Pupils at a Chorley high school met with Sir Lindsay Hoyle MP after they marched on the town hall to declare a ‘climate emergency’.
Parklands High School pupils marched on Friday (September 20) as part of global ‘School Strike for Climate’ protests around the world – inspired by Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg. The youngsters walked from the Chorley school in Southport Road to Chorley Town Hall – the home of Chorley Council – to show leaders that they feel something needs to be done. Sir Lindsay said: "Friday’s day of action was a global event and I think it was right that our local schools chose to involve the young people of Chorley. They expressed their thoughts and informed concerns over the future of their planet – the reality is that if we can take action, then we should."
