'I love calling out politicians': Xiuhtezcatl Martinez on the teenage stand against climate change

the guardian - Thu, 14/02/2019 - 16:54

The 18-year-old activist is among those suing the Trump administration for climate inaction. Now he’s asking more students to get involved by joining the school strikes

University students should support “badass” teenagers who skip school to strike for climate action by walking out of lectures alongside them, a leading youth activist has said. In recent months more than 20,000 children have skipped school across Germany, Belgium, Switzerland and Australia, demanding governments and politicians do more to limit the effects of global warming. There are more strikes planned in the coming months.

Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, 18, global youth director of Earth Guardians, and one of 21 young people suing the Trump administration for failing to combat climate change, says his peers are now at the “head of the table” when it comes to climate activism and that more of them should take part in walkouts.

the guardian - Thu, 14/02/2019 - 09:00

Universities are changing the way they teach to prepare students for a future in which lots of jobs will be automated

A few numbers are enough to sum up how far the world of work is changing. More than six million workers fear their jobs could be replaced by machines in the next 10 years. Around 1.1 million people now work in the gig economy, using online platforms to find small, often on-demand, jobs.
