BAR HARBOR — Mount Desert Island High School and College of the Atlantic students plan a “climate strike” school walk-out Friday, March 15, at noon in the Village Green. Speakers will begin at 12:30 p.m.
“Youth from College of the Atlantic and Mount Desert High School along with community members will be gathering on the village green to speak about climate change and their demands for global, national and local climate action,” event organizers said. “This action will be in support of the 750-plus global school climate strikes happening on March 15 around the world that have been calling for radical action on climate change.”
