    Stirling youngsters set to join global climate strike

    Written by on September 20, 2019

    Schoolchildren in Stirling will join kids from around the world today, in a climate change strike.

    The protest is being organised by 16-year-old activist Greta Thunberg, and follows similar protests earlier this year.

    They’ll be at the city’s Pitt Terrace from 11am this morning.

    It’s thought pupils in more than 150 countries are taking part in the campaign.

    Teaching union EIS Scotland have urged local authorities not to sanction kids taking part in the strike.

    Larry Flanagan is the union’s general secretary:

    “Whilst the EIS is not encouraging pupils/students to participate in anti-climate change strikes, we recognise that many will do so. We believe that their right to do so should be respected and that participants should not be sanctioned or punished as a consequence. If we are to encourage our pupils to be confident individuals that effectively contribute to society on global themes including sustainability, we shouldn’t seek to punish them when they campaign for global sustainability.”

    “We believe this should be founded on the basic premise that for pupils who are 16 or over, any decision to participate in the strike can be made on an independent basis and then processed in line with the Local Authority’s policy. For those under 16, pupils should be advised that they should seek parental endorsement if they are going to be absent and that parents should inform the school.”
