Notes the Global Climate Strike is being led by young people of ‘Fridays for Future’ this time calling on adults to support them in a general strike;


Notes that the Global Climate Strike is taking place during the United Nations Emergency Climate Change Summit being held in New York;


Notes that ’Scottish Youth Climate Strikers’ have notified the Council of their intention to march and hold a rally on Friday 20 September as part of this Global Climate Strike;


Therefore agrees, to allow school students to take part in this Global Climate Strike 2019, that this day should be considered by the authority as an authorised absence from school as long as a parent/carer has sent prior written permission to their child’s school with a clear statement that the parent/carer will be responsible for their child during the absence from school.”
