Irony is a wonderful thing. 

One year ago, thousands of misguided schoolchildren around the world hit the streets campaigning for climate change action, but now the same campaigners have been confined to their bedrooms.

Protestors were able to enjoy a four-hour live stream with musical performancetalks, discussions and storytelling with a guest appearance by environmentalist Tim Flannery.
