Universities show solidarity for striking school students

From Morning Report, 8:00 am on 3 September 2019

Victoria University has joined Lincoln University in endorsing a strike by school students at the end of September.

Both are encouraging their staff and students to take part and neither will need to take annual leave nor explain their absence if they do so.

The move comes ahead of a plan due to be announced by Victoria on how it hopes to reduce its carbon footprint.

Victoria University's Vice-Chancellor Grant Guilford spoke to Corin Dann.
