“The time for discussions and long talks about how and whether the problem should be solved is up,” said Emma Zajačková, one of the organisers, during the September 20 climate strike protest in Bratislava. “It’s time to act.”
She called on people to help them with their efforts to save the planet. She called on parents and teachers to educate children about climate change, and journalists to write about what we are doing to the planet.
“Climate change is the biggest challenge humankind has ever faced,” Zajačková said.
The event was organised in the capital by the Fridays for Future Slovakia student initiative for the fourth time. Apart from Bratislava, it was also held in Banská Bystrica, Košice, and Žilina, attended by several thousand people.
