Until recently, Holly Gillibrand was like any other schoolchild, keen on the outdoors, football and rock climbing, inspired by the stunning surroundings of her secondary school at the foot of Ben Nevis.

直到最近,霍莉·吉利布兰德(HollyGillibrand)都和其他学生一样,喜欢户外运动、足球和攀岩。她的初中学校位于本·尼维斯(Ben Nevis)山脚处,那里风景极佳,激发了她的很多灵感。  

But for the past five Fridays, while hundreds of her fellow students file into class, she has stood outside Lochaber high school in Fort William in the Highlands to take strike action.

但是,在过去的每个星期五(连续五周),当其他同学都去上课时,她却站在高地威廉堡(Fort William)的罗哈伯高中(Lochaber high school)外进行罢 课。

Her protest is not for better classrooms, nicer meals or more free time. Holly, 13, is helping to build a UK movement of children demanding more action on climate change by withdrawing themselves from the lessons they are legally required to attend.

她的抗 议并不是为了更好的教室、更美味的饭菜,也不是为了更多的闲暇时间。13岁的霍莉正在帮助发动一场英国儿童运动,要求采取更多的行动应对气候变化。积极参与运动的孩子们退出法律上要求参加的课程以表支持。

They are working towards a UK school strike next Friday, which will follow other walkouts by tens of thousands of children across Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden and Australia.

继发生在比利时、德国、瑞士、瑞典和澳大利亚的数万名儿童的罢 课运动之后, 下周五的英国学校罢 课将紧随其后。

Holly was inspired by the actions of Greta Thunberg, who in September sat outside the Swedish parliament for three weeks on “school strike”. International interest in her story led to Thunberg going to Davos last month to address world leaders. While she travelled for 32 hours on trains to reach the ski resort, political and business leaders hired 1,500 private jets to get to the summit.

霍莉的参加罢 课的行为受到格雷塔·图恩伯格(Greta Thunberg)的启发。格雷塔曾于9月份在瑞典议会外举行了为期三周的“学校罢 课”,国际社会对格雷塔的故事产生了兴趣,上周邀她前往达沃斯,向世界各国领导人发表演讲。在她乘坐32个小时的火车来到了滑雪度假村时,政界和商界的领袖雇用了1500架私人飞机去参加峰会。
