As the devastation of climate change threatens future generations, it is children who are leading the fight to save the planet. Recently, students around the world took a day off of school to protest inaction against climate change. They were inspired by Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old founder of the Youth Strike for Climate movement, who was recently nominated for the Nobel peace prize.
But students don’t have to stop the fight against climate change now that they’re back in school. In fact, a new bill in the California Legislature could help students across the state fight climate change with the foods served in their schools’ lunch lines.
