On September 20, 2019, hundreds of thousands of school pupils around the world abandoned their classrooms to protest against climate change. They were inspired by Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg, who protests weekly outside Sweden's parliament.
Now young people in more than 2,000 communities in 125 countries have followed her lead by going on a day-long strike.
In July 2015, Amma was invited to French President François Hollande’s Special Envoy for the Protection of the Planet. She could not physically attend the day-long meeting in France because she was concluding her North American tour. However, she sent this video message to share her thoughts on climate change and the actions we as a global community must take.
