By Matthew McCully – On Friday in Cowansville, community members participated in the second ‘Fridays For Future’ strike to raise awareness and call for action to fight climate change. The strike, part of a global movement, was organized by Jen Tevyaw along with her husband and children. According to Tevyaw, the idea to get involved in Fridays For Future was inspired by teenage Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg, who has been striking and holding demonstrations throughout Europe to raise awareness about climate change. “Change needs to be real in the next five years,” Tevyaw said.
