Django Grace, 13, a seventh-grader at Brattleboro Area Middle School, stands in front of the entrance of Brattleboro Union High School on Friday to protest government inaction on climate change. Brattleboro students were among the more than 1 million young climate change activists in at least 112 countries who joined in the global protest. The student movement was inspired by 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, now nominated for a Nobel Prize, who sat outside Swedish parliament every Friday beginning last August.
