Shady Hill Students Join Boston’s Global Climate Strike

On September 20, SHS students participated in Boston’s Global Climate Strike and joined others around the world demanding action on the climate crisis. The Boston demonstration was youth-led and followed the example set by 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg. SHS alum Audrey Lin ‘15 of the Boston Sunrise Movement helped to organize the Boston strike. Click here for her interview on WBUR about the Boston action. 
Many SHS students participated, and five who attended presented at last week’s Middle School Assembly, sharing information, pictures, and personal experiences. They spoke about how events like these are opportunities to think about who we are, the values we hold dear, and ways to use voice to stand up for one's beliefs.

On campus, several classes made signs and staged their own climate strike. Click here for a video of Mellisha Culpepper’s fifth-grade class marching on campus.
