On September 20th and 27th, Greta Thunberg led young climate strikers in over 150 countries in a protest demanding an end to the age of fossil fuels. With climate change unwilling to wait for us to get our s**t together, she and many youth activists have decided that they won't wait either. Below are five things you can do to be a part of the solution:
