The school climate strikes that have led to tens of thousands of young people taking to the streets around the world over recent months are poised to arrive in the UK next Friday.
Thousands of pupils are expected to walk out of lessons at schools and colleges across the country amid growing concern about the escalating climate crisis.

The Pope is one of the most influential persons on the planet. In the past, Pope Francis has spoken out against important issues and in defense of animals. In his 2015 encyclical, “Laudato Si” he expressed concern for our oceans due to climate change, and spoke against animal testing and the mistreatment of animals in general. He’s also known to be the first Pope to say that dogs go to heaven. Given his past remarks proving he feels compassion for animals and the name he took of St Francis of
"To celebrate the Earth's yearly solar cycle is to take part in an ancient tradition of Earth-awareness, handed down from our Celtic past. These Earth festivals help us re-establish and revive our lost sacred connection and partnership with the land. Celtic spirituality has its roots in a holistic perspective and stems from a time when the Earth was revered as a life-giving Goddess who embodied the five elements essential for life: Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and the interconnecting invisible web o
Can we learn to 'sing one song' together?

I remember the first time I heard it… I forgot my wetsuit that morning, so I was shivering as I paddled out into the spring waves, but the water was so clear that it felt like it was calling me… and I knew I had to answer. As I reached the deeper waters out past the break, I slid off my surfboard and dove down deep – something the buoyancy of my forgotten wetsuit would not have allowed so easily. I swam down as far as I could go… and as
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

A Kurdish asylum seeker has won one of the most important Australian literature prizes, the Victorian Prize for Literature.
However, Iranian Kurd Behrouz Boochani was unable to accept the award personally in Melbourne because he is being kept on Manus Island.
Boochani won the award, which comes with a monetary prize of 100,000 Australian dollars (approximately $73,000), for his book No Friend but the Mountains: Writing from Manus Prison. It was written in Farsi while he was held in the now-close
In this passionate call to action, 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg explains why, in August 2018, she walked out of school and organized a strike to raise awareness of global warming, protesting outside the Swedish parliament and grabbing the world's attention. "The climate crisis has already been solved. We already have all the facts and solutions," Thunberg says. "All we have to do is to wake up and change."

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
their bad advice –
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
“Mend my life!”
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little b
Here is when XR becomes exciting to me!
Stuart Basden: I’m here to say that XR isn’t about the climate. You see, the climate’s breakdown is a symptom of a toxic system of that has infected the ways we relate to each other as humans and to all life. This was exacerbated when European ‘civilisation’ was spread around the globe through cruelty and violence (especially) over the last 600 years of colonialism, although the roots of the infections go much further back...

If you think the Earth takes millions of years to change, it’s time to think again! Presented by Hannah Fry, this TV special reveals how much our planet can change in just 24 hours. A new era of science allows us to watch as the Earth moves, breathes, shrinks and grows right under our noses. The story is driven by scientists and explorers, and harnesses cutting-edge data, newly launched satellites and blue chip CGI to show us the true personality of the Earth… more dynamic than it’s ever been se
To what extent do we decide? We tell ourselves we choose our own life course, but is this ever true? If you or I had lived 500 years ago, our worldview, and the decisions we made as a result, would have been utterly different. Our minds are shaped by our social environment, in particular the belief systems projected by those in power: monarchs, aristocrats and theologians then; corporations, billionaires and the media today.
Humans, the supremely social mammals, are ethical and intellectual spon

The Earth is far more alive than previously thought, according to “deep life” studies that reveal a rich ecosystem beneath our feet that is almost twice the size of all the world’s oceans.
Despite extreme heat, no light, minuscule nutrition and intense pressure, scientists estimate this subterranean biosphere is teeming with between 15bn and 23bn tonnes of micro-organisms, hundreds of times the combined weight of every human on the planet.
Researchers at the Deep Carbon Observatory say the diver
Speaking at the opening ceremony of United Nations-sponsored climate talks in Katowice, Poland, Sir David Attenborough said climate change is humanity's greatest threat in thousands of years.
