‘Friday for Future’ student protest against climate change will be organized in Sarajevo on June 7 in front of the Eternal Flame monument.
The event is organized by the Climate Save Bosnia movement and EVA - Animal Rights Organization of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
#FridaysForFuture is a movement that began in August 2018, after 15-year-old Greta Thunberg sat in front of the Swedish Parliament every school day for three weeks, to protest against the lack of action on the climate crisis. She posted what she was doing on Instagram and Twitter and it soon went viral.
On September 8, Greta decided to continue striking every Friday until the Swedish policies provided a safe pathway well under two degrees Celsius, in other words in line with the Paris Agreement.
The hashtags #FridaysForFuture and #Climatestrike spread and many students and adults began to protest outside of their parliaments and local city halls all over the world.
The Paris Agreement is an agreement within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), dealing with greenhouse-gas-emissions mitigation, adaptation, and finance, signed in 2016.
