Global climate strike
A global climate strike is under way, with millions of people protesting for “an end to the age of fossil fuels and climate justice for everyone”.
The event was sparked by teenage campaigner Greta Thunberg, who is attending the New York protest, where 1.1m children have been allowed to miss school to join the march.
Here are pictures of marches across the world.
