Students passionate about drawing attention to climate change have marched the streets of Launceston for the second time in as many months.
The international School Strike for Climate movement has recently gained serious momentum, with students the world over expressing their distaste at elected officials' perceived lack of action in relation to global warming.
Launceston's School Strike for Climate representatives, including students from Latrobe High School, St Patrick's College, Big Picture High School and more, organised a 'day of action' for what they're calling Australia's climate election.
The students, joined by Bass Labor MHR Ross Hart and Tasmanian Greens Senator Peter Whish-Wilson, marched to their local members' electorate offices in an attempt to send them a message.
Among the offices they visited were those of Bass Liberal candidate Bridget Archer and Tasmanian Liberal Senator Wendy Askew, who the students said were "both pointedly absent".
The school strikers said the day was underpinned by a platform comprised of three directives they want the nation's politicians and candidates to take heed of: stop the proposed Adani coal mine development in North Queensland, don't commit to "new fossil fuels" and pledge to become a 100 per cent renewable nation by 2030.
The students said the day of action opened up the political discussion in Launceston around climate change and provided a forum for the city's young people to express their views on the issue.
