Thousands of students around the world plan to take the day off from school and march to protest government leaders' perceived lack of urgency to address global climate change. The demonstrations, under the "Youth Strike 4 Climate" banner, are part of an international movement to demand more effective government action on climate change issues.
Individuals in the UK are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate crowds, localized disruptions, and a heightened security presence near demonstrations, and avoid all public or political demonstrations as a precaution.
