Climate strikes inspired by Thunberg started in Asia on Friday and continued in Europe.
Candace Cooke and her partner took their children out of school so that they could take part in the rally.
The demonstrations were sparked by Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg, with many participants echoing the anger she expressed to world leaders this week at a United Nations summit in NY.
She pleaded with leaders to listen to the scientists and do more than cut emissions by half in 10 years, which only provides a 50 per cent chance of staying below 1.5 C. "It's probably not going to be too bad for me, to be honest, but she's going to be 80 in 2100 and that's when the projections are looking quite bad, so I'm doing it for her", he said.

Another day of global protest took place Friday, including in more than 85 cities and towns in Canada.
