Students in Switzerland are expected to protest on Friday, March 15, at 10:30 (local time) to demand climate change action. Protests are expected to take place until 17:00, notably in Geneva, Lausanne, Fribourg, Neuchatel, Sion, and Jura. According to the organization Youth for Climate Cyprus, the protesters aim to demonstrate that climate change is a significant issue and to urge the government to adopt stronger policies to combat climate change. A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be expected near the demonstration.
Thousands of students around the world plan to take the day off from school and march in protest against 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 Switzerland are advised to monitor developments to the situation and avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution.
