The ‘Strike for the Climate’ action by New Zealand students and their counterparts worldwide is inspirational and justified.

TIASA congratulates these students on their courageous leadership – something that has been lacking from successive generations and world political leaders.

Students, you are not alone.  For each one of you taking this climate strike action there are many, many ordinary citizens who fully support you.  We are already feeling the impacts of accelerating climate change, and it is you students, the youth of today, who will have to bear its worsening brunt in the near future if no concerted worldwide action is taken now to arrest this before it is too late.   Your strike isn’t just for yourselves, it is for all life on the planet.   

Kia kaha.
