Midlands students are joining a worldwide call for climate change action by protesting outside Government offices this afternoon.

At 12 noon, pupils from Sacred Heart and Coláiste Choilm will meet at Offaly County Council, urging councillors to put more emphasis on practices that don’t harm our environment.
