Here are all the best signs from Edinburgh’s student climate strike

DON’T POISON MY SWAP


On Friday, Edinburgh Uni students joined over 1000 other young people at Edinburgh's Youth Climate Strike, in solidarity with school children around the country protesting the lack of action by the government in combatting climate change. Here are some of our favourite signs.

These are short and sweet, but definitely get the message across

These students were campaigning for greater legislation on single use plastic, a halt to the investment in fossil fuel extraction, and more commitment from government to create sustainable economic and environmental policy.
