STUDENTS returned to Winchester streets today to demand action on climate change.

Dozens of pupils aged from around seven years to A-level students protested in the city centre, waving placards and chanting slogans to raise awareness of the environmental crisis.

They gathered outside the Guildhall and also by the city council offices on Colebrook Street.

Anna Catling, 18, is at Barton Peveril College in Eastleigh and despite being right in the middle of ‘A’ level exams feels strongly about making her presence felt.

She said: “I am passionate about geography and we have a duty to do something about climate change because there is a point of no return. There are no solutions left for us.”

Emily Wanstall, 16, is studying French, History and Psychology A Levels, said: "Adults are not taking the climate change emergency seriously. They make all our political decisions but they won’t be living long enough to suffer the result and yet, it will be affecting our lives forever.”

Daisy Hawker, 17, student at Peter Symonds College, said: “We feel that it is our responsibility to take action and raise awareness for our current climate emergency situation.”
