Climate march

In pictures: Students march through Brighton over climate change

Hundreds of students and schoolchildren downed tools to march over climate change today (February 15).

Green MP Caroline Lucas joined the march, which is calling on the Government to declare a climate emergency, the ‘ecological crisis’ included in the National Curriculum, and for the voting age be lowered to 16.
