This time Stratford students walked to Rathmines and back along the Rathmines-Rathgar main road. Shouting and singing, while displaying posters about the problems of Climate Change, Stratford students got a lot of reaction from passers-by.
Charlie Morris McGill (1st Year) wrote the following piece: On Friday 20th of September 2019 a group of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd years at Stratford College went on a march for climate action. We all marched from our school to Rathmines for a good hour! We had a brilliant time shouting our chants for climate action till our voices hurt. With this march we wanted to raise more awareness about the problems going on with climate change and the worry of what it all means for our generation’s future. We marched on behalf of our planet. We got plenty of beeping of car horns and ringing of bicycle bells. This showed to us that there could be some hope left for our planet and our futures.
What will YOU do to help our planet?
