One summer not long ago, 15-year-old Greta Thunberg decided to skip school and protest climate inaction. Since then, this one-person protest has turned into a global movement supported by thousands of people. In 2019, the Fridays for Future movement was growing in Canada, and protests were happening in many cities across the country. I documented those protests and other environmental demonstrations in and around Vancouver that year, before the pandemic hit.
