Dayne told the Gurn:
"Others and myself decided that not enough action was being taken by global and UK politicians on climate change, so we decided to strike to address the issue that will impact all of us, for the 15th, the future and our future.
Not enough action has been taken, Myself and many students of Nairn Academy are sick of people with high authority not addressing this as an emergency.
We need the government to declare a state of climate emergency and aim to get people talking about this crisis.
I will continue to take action on making this public and helping in any way that I can.
If we do not take this seriously we will cause unnecessary suffering to people around the world from the effects of climate change including ourselves.
People around me always tell me to stand up for something that I believe in, so I did that.
My name is Dayne Inglis, 16, 5th year Nairn Academy."
Gurn Comment: Here at the Gurn we support the youth who want nothing more than a decent future on a planet that supports life. We are well on our way to making our home uninhabitable. There is no Planet B we have to do everything we can to make sure that the youth of today have a future.
Get involved folks. There are things we can do as individuals, groups, communities etc but we also have to insist on massive, systematic, structural changes - good on the youth of Nairn for leading the way. Let's do it before it is too late. "NIMBI - Now I must become Involved"
