Climate change is a major global challenge facing mankind today. Climate governance is not simply environmental governance and technological governance, but global governance that requires the participation of everyone. Taking the ??Friday For Future?? campaign launched by Greta Thunberg as an example, this paper discusses the expanding trend of primary and secondary school students?? participation in climate governance of Europe and America, and analyzes the impact of this campaign. It is found that the enlargement of primary and secondary school students?? participation in Europe and America is mainly reflected in three aspects: scale, governance demands and age level. On the one hand, the ??Fridays for Future?? campaign has raised the global people??s attention to climate governance issues, on the other hand, it has the negative impact of spreading populism, misinformation and bad behavior demonstration.
