In Rome, posing in a front of a banner that says “There is no planet B,” Emilio Zanzibar, 17, is worried for animals’ future as well as humans.
On the right, Pietro Rossi, 16, is one of the many protesters today who are inspired by Great Thunberg. “Greta’s courage to stand all alone at the beginning has been of real inspiration for all,” he says.

The climate activism isn’t confined to Rome. In Pisa, protester Martina Cocchi says: “In my region climate change is eroding coast areas.”
She adds: “I hope with this protest to raise awareness. Together we can influence more and more people everyday and get the attention of the people in power.”
