Protests may have been restricted during the pandemic, but young climate activists in Berlin have found an alternative way of reminding people of the other emergency threatening life as we know it.
Fridays for Future warn the COVID-19 pandemic must not interrupt the fight against the climate crisis. The youth-led movement has called for an online global climate strike on April 24. But it's easier said than done.
