Participants in the Fridays for Future march in Glasgow, UK

Participants in the Fridays for Future march in Glasgow, UK, 5 November 2021, during COP26. Fridays for Future is a worldwide movement born when Greta Thunberg started standing outside the Swedish parliament with a sign that said “school strike for climate” in August 2018. Other activists followed and it is now a worldwide movement with children all over the planet taking part. Many young people and families joined the demonstration with signs.


The online event, titled "Children's Pledge: Unveiling Perspectives on Global Financial Justice,” coincides with the commemoration of the Day of the African Child and will pay tribute to the brave participants of the 1976 Soweto Uprising.

"The webinar serves as a precursor to the child-driven side event at the forthcoming Summit for a New Global Financial Pact in Paris on 22-23 June,” says WCC senior advisor on Child Rights, Frederique Seidel, who added that the webinar promises to be a thought-provoking and impactful gathering.
