Thousands of children across Australia walked out of class on Friday to demand action on climate change.

The "Strike 4 Climate Action" protest was inspired by 15-year-old Swede Greta Thunberg, who on Friday continued her similar, four month protest outside parliament in Stockholm.

Radio Sweden speaks to Milou Albrecht, from rural Victoria, about her day of strike action in Melbourne, as well as Greta Thunberg about a similar day of action in Sweden.
