MELBOURNE/WELLINGTON : And these great and caring Students step-up global calls to fight climate change.

And concurrently in Europe, the scene is just so typical. Hungry tourists and students stream into glass-fronted  balcony of Michael Recktenwald's  restaurant on the German island Langeeog, with its splendid view of the  North Sea and the blue skies above.

The 49 year-old-has lived in Langeoog for most of his life, and his wife's family has been there for generations, but  Ravktenwald fears their children may not be able to stay if the world keeps on warming.

Concerns about climate change  prompted mass protests across Europe for the past year. For the first time, the issue is expected to have a  significant impact on this week's elections for the European Parliament.

Recktenwald pointed to the damaged  levees protecting the island, which is part of the Frisian Archipelago off the coast of Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark.

Islands like Langeoog are among the regions most vulnerable to the rising sea levels predicted to result from  climate change.   

THOUSANDS of young activists in Australia and New Zealand launched a global protest on Friday demanding that politicians and business leaders move swiftly to curb greenhouse gas emissions to fight climate change.

Coordinators expect more than a million young people to join protests in at at least 110 countries, inspired by  16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg's demand for urgent action to slow global warming.

''I'm worried about all the weather disasters. Everytime we have a huge bushfire here another animal might go extinct,'' said Nina Pasquialini, a 13-year old at a rally in Melbourne, led by the group Extinction Rebellion.

''The government is doing as much as it should. It's just scary for younger generations,'' she said, holding up a placard seeking to stop a proposed new coal mine in Australia.

Global warning due to heat-trapping  greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuel has brought more droughts and heatwaves, melting of glaciers, rising sea levels and devastating floods, scientists say.

Australia just had the hottest summer on record.

Last year, global carbon emissions hit a record high, despite a warning from the U.N. backed Intergovernmental Panel  on Climate Change in October that output of the gases will have to be slashed over the next 12 years to stabilise the climate.

Against a backdrop of elections to the  European Parliament which began on Thursday, the  Frankfurt school strikers plan to march on the headquarters of the European Central Bank to demand  that it stop financing the fossil fuel industry.

The ECB says its mandate is to control inflation and not to favor certain market sectors over others.

Since Thunberg began, a single handed climate protest outside the Swedish Parliament in August, the Fridays for Future school strike movement has grown exponentially, with groups inspired by her example rapidly clustering into larger, self-organising networks connect across time zones by social media.

Sophie Hanford, a national organizer in New Zealand, and the Melbourne organisers said they anticipate a large  students strike in September that would include adults and workers.

''There'll definitely be more. This is only the beginning,'' Hanford said on New Zealand's television show.

The World Students Society has the honour to offer all the climate change protesters the world over, total support and coverage.
