More than 150 people took part in a climate change protest in Aberdeen city centre as part of a string of protests in the city and throughout the country.
Protesters gathered outside Marischal College to make their voices heard.
The protest was organised by Aberdeen University students as part of the UK student climate networks’ Youth Strike 4 Climate.
It was part of an international event, with around 10,000 students in the UK taking part.
A number of school pupils in the city also missed classes to take part in the event.
It marked the beginning of a week-long series of events to raise awareness of climate change in Aberdeen.
The protest featured numerous handmade signs as well as chants.
One of the organisers was Tomas Pizarro-Escuti, 21, a student of history and international relations at Aberdeen University.
He said: “The youth are key players in this fight.
“We organised this in a week, so we are very happy with the turnout and hope that it means our next march will be even bigger.”
Guy Ingerson, co-convener for Aberdeen Greens, was also among the crowd at Marischal College.
He said: “I think it’s really inspiring seeing young people taking their future into their hands.
“It goes to show that large numbers of youths will turn out for a matter that they feel strongly about.”
One of the students who attended the protest was John Sergison, 29, who studies forestry and is the president of the Woodland Society at Aberdeen University.
He said: “People are taking time out of their busy schedule to help extend the time of the planet. Something drastic needs to happen to help with climate change.”
Another protester was Matthew Keracher, a 24 year-old post-graduate student of anthropology at Aberdeen University. He said: “It’s up to young people, who have the most at stake, to demonstrate the right values for the world and show the way to move forward.
“I want to find out by myself, by participating in this, what change can happen.”
Youngsters were taking part in strikes in locations around Scotland including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Fenwick, and Inverness.
Among those protesting in the north-east were pupils from Lathallan school.
They made seven banners about climate change and held them in front of passing traffic on the A92 costal road.
A pupil from the school, Daisy White, said: “It’s our generation who will have to deal with the problems caused by climate change so it makes sense for us to be proactive in doing something about it.”
Meanwhile, pupils from the Gordon Schools in Huntly also protested, with police originally called as a precaution after numbers swelled.
A spokesman for Aberdeenshire Council said: “Initially six students protested at the Gordon Schools in Huntly.
“However, a larger group of between 40 and 50 pupils decided to join in. Teachers then contacted Police Scotland as a precautionary measure.
“By the time police arrived, pupils had returned to their classrooms.
“The school has followed its usual procedures by marking the pupils that were not in class as taking an unauthorised absence.
“The school has informed their parents of this.”
A police spokeswoman said officers were called to the school but there was no criminality.
