UK publishers, booksellers and literary agents were among the millions around the world who took part in a climate strike and protests to demand urgent action on environmental change.

The marches, inspired by Swedish environmental campaigner Greta Thunberg, saw students and workers across the UK join protests and marches on Friday 20th September, with many in the book trade taking up the cause.

The Booksellers’ Association announced a new green strategy at its conference earlier this month and encouraged members to take part in Friday’s strike.
