#AntarcticLog: #FridaysforFuture

Posted by Shane Hanlon

#AntarcticLog is a series of comics by Karen Romano Young. You can find the originals here.
I’ve made no secret of my admiration for youth climate activists around the world. This week’s #AntarcticLog features four from Kenya and Uganda, along with quotes from their social media posts. 
Here’s a look back at a few other comics about activists. This one features some of the thousands of kids who have taken part in Friday School Strikes for Climate. 
 Some of them weren’t even in middle school when first heard from — and others, predictably, have grown up to make speeches — and a difference — in international forums. 
They inspire me, and challenge me to speak out and do more.
