Dozens of Aberdeen students have taken to the streets to demand action on climate change.
Around 40 young activists held placards and chanted outside Marischal College yesterday, hoping to add to the growing nationwide movement demanding more be done to protect the planet.
A member of the Aberdeen Student Climate Network, Isabella Maria Engberg led yesterday’s rally.
She said: “We want a secure future and we are not being promised that by the policies that are being introduced by politicians.
“We have had a climate emergency declared, but yet nothing seems to be getting done.
“We need to make it easier for people to take public transportation – Aberdeen is a very carbon driven city.”
The student placards condemned the use of single-use plastics and featured slogans like “we are weapons of mass destruction” and “climate action now”.
Many were school pupils who had taken time off from lessons to attend the event.
Grace Brown, 12, was attending with her friend and with permission from her mother.
Grace said she “wanted the world to be better”.
Thousands of students skipped school in March as part of a global protest inspired by 16-year-old school girl Greta Thunberg, who has now been nominated for a Nobel Prize.
Yesterday’s event was the fourth protest that had been held by the student group.
