Institutions across Ottawa are preparing for a large number of absences on Friday as young activists participate in the Global Climate Strike.

The protests are part of a global initiative organized by students in more than 150 countries to demand action on the climate crisis.

The Ottawa rally begins in Confederation Park at 11:30 a.m. before moving to Parliament Hill around 12:30 p.m. until 2 p.m.

The Ottawa Facebook event said 2,000 people are going and another nearly 3,000 are interested in attending.
