Climate Change: During the past 18 months headlines has been made on climate emergency and especially the young climate activist Greta Thunberg and how she has inspired millions of young people—as well as adults—to protest to raise awareness about the climate crisis. This has received widespread support and praise for her raising global awareness of the climate crisis, alongside a number of young climate activists around the world. Also during this period another activist group Extinction Rebellion has used non-violent methods to encourage those in power to take action on climate and environment issues.
