Children to demand action on climate change with major rally outside Leinster House

Children of all ages will gather outside Leinster House this afternoon to demand urgent action on climate change from the Government.

The Children’s Rally is highlighting the fact that the young people of the world – and the generations that will follow them – will face the worst consequences of climate change.

The rally gets underway at Leinster House at 4pm this afternoon.

It comes ahead of a landmark legal action against the Irish Government that is due to get underway in the Four Courts this Tuesday.

The case, taken by Friends of the Irish Environment, aims to compel the Government to take the required action to mitigate the climate catastrophe facing future generations.
