15 March: Today millions of students and young people will be mobilizing in actions around the world to stop climate changes.  These young people are outraged by the lack of political leadership and will to address the serious threats to our planet.  Youth leaders and activists of BWI affiliates will also join the global events and the movement to stop climate change.  Here are their voices:

 Vasyl Andreyev (PROFBUD-Ukraine), Chair of BWI International Youth Committee:
 “Many of us in Europe feel that climate change is not a disputed point for politicians on whether it exists or not. For workers, climate change is also not an issue of only strong winds or exhausting sun. When the last tree disappears on Earth, people of work will remain alone in devastated areas.  Thus, we, the youth, will take the lead and go on strike. Strike not for Climate but strike for our Future!”
