From the Pacific Islands to Australia and India, protesters demanded their governments take urgent steps to tackle the climate crisis and prevent an environmental catastrophe.

Protests were staged in 110 towns and cities across Australia, calling on the government to commit to a target of net-zero carbon emissions by 2030.
