Greta Thunberg and youth activists to take to streets in Glasgow to demand action on climate change

Youth activists are taking to the streets of Glasgow to demand action on climate change from leaders and politicians as the Cop26 talks continue.

Campaigner Greta Thunberg, fellow activist Vanessa Nakate and other young campaigners, as well as local trade unionists, will speak to crowds at the end of the march through the city where the UN summit is being held.

The climate strike organised by Fridays for Future Scotland, with participants marching at 11am from Kelvingrove Park to George Square, comes as the Cop26 talks feature events highlighting the voice of young people and education in climate action.

An estimated 8,000 to 10,000 people are expected to take part in the march.
