COP26 Youth Day: Thousands take to Glasgow’s streets to demand action on climate change

At COP26 in Glasgow, it’s officially Youth Day, but you didn’t need to be inside the conference walls to see that.

Thousands of young people, including many striking school children, took to the city’s streets this afternoon, demanding more action from the delegates.

There was a big turnout in George Square to hear Greta Thunberg criticise the conference as “a celebration of business as usual”.
