Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg nominated for Norway's Nobel Peace Prize

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg attends a protest rally in Hamburg Germany Friday

RTÉ's Education Correspondent Emma O'Kelly met some Dublin students who are intent on protesting on Friday. Amnesty International has warned that the failure of world governments to tackle the crisis could amount to "one of the greatest intergenerational human rights violations in history".

"We don't support the idea of kids not going to school to participate in things that can be dealt with outside of school", he said in November.

"They've had enough. And no wonder - it's their future on the line. This should be a moment for stark self-reflection by our political class". The less action taken in the short term, the worse the long-term impacts will be, researchers have spelled out in recent reports from United States and United Nations climate scientists.

Now, a global grassroots movement is expected to bring tens of thousands of school students onto the streets tomorrow in countries across the world.

"It is truly inspiring to see young people, led by brilliant young women, making their voices heard and demanding urgent climate action".

In Wellington, the protesters will rally outside Parliament, and in Auckland they will be gathering at Aotea Square. "Everyone should be scared", she said.

Since then, she has been missing lessons most Fridays to stage her regular protests.

Students across Washington will leave school Friday to take part in a national youth climate strike.

The March 15 protest isn't the first of its kind. I want you to panic.

Maltese students will be marching from the University of Malta to Valletta, Malta's capital city, to emphasise how they do not want to inherit a land, and indeed world, that has been destroyed and poisoned through humanity's gluttonous greed.

A list of regional protests was available at the School Strike 4 Climate Australia website.

"On climate change, we have to acknowledge that we have failed", she told global economic leaders in Davos.

After meeting up at University, students will march to Valletta's Parliament to join in the main demonstration.

Gina Heyrman, a spokeswoman for the 1.6 million-strong socialist trades union ABVV-FGTB, noted "similarities" with the Paris protests of 1968. People did die, are dying and will die because of it, but we can and will stop this madness'.

I hope that you will be awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace.

The rival CSC Christian trade union is also planning a "massive mobilisation", although some of its workers can not strike because of a strike notification law. For example, students in Australia seek to stop the Adani mine, a large coal mine they fear will hurt the Great Barrier Reef, while students in the US will advocate for the Green New Deal, a progressive piece of climate legislation that is popular among youth-led climate initiatives like Sunrise Movement and Zero Hour.
