Castlegar students hold climate action walk out

Students from Stanley Humphries Secondary School walked out of class in support of climate action.

Students at Stanley Humphries Secondary School took part in a climate action walk-out last week.

”The students walked out to bring awareness to the issue of climate change and to show our community, school district, and the world that no matter how small we may think our community is we can still make an impactful change,” said student Caitlyn Kellendonk.

Members from the West Kootenay EcoSociety, Selkirk Environmental Club, the Citizens’ Climate Lobby and more came in support of the students and ran educational booths.

“The students are dedicated to environmental change within their school and community,” added Kellendonk. “It’s time our community takes action.”
