Abstract

The school climate-strike movement has become a powerful force, shaping how people engage with climate change. Here we use a qualitative interview methodology to give voice to adolescents in the United Kingdom. We show how our participants—strikers and non-strikers alike—were united in framing climate change as an issue of intergenerational injustice, suggesting they may share one of the conditions for a politicized collective identity.
