Government’s Human Rights Commissioner invites striking students for talks

The government’s Human Rights Commissioner Klára Šimáčková Laurenčíková has invited representatives of university students who went on a climate strike this week to a joint meeting.

In her statement, the commissioner said that the demands of the University for Climate student movement are central to finding solutions to climate challenges.

Students across Czechia have been occupying universities since Monday, calling on the government to take immediate action in addressing the climate crisis and growing social inequalities.
