Local activists will join an international activism campaign called the Global Climate Strike, to raise awareness about the dangers of the continued use of fossil fuels, tomorrow from noon to 1 p.m. beginning at the Old Blaine County Courthouse.

     The Hailey Climate Action Coalition will join the student-led protest for the march.

     Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, 16, drew attention to the movement in 2018 when she began skipping school on Fridays to protest climate change inaction outside the Swedish parliament.

     The Global Climate Strike is organized largely through social media and therefore there is no clear idea of how many people will participate.
