In the race for existence, striking teenagers discover that activism, authority, and awareness make for a steep learning curve. High Tide Don’t Hide is a powerful message about acting local to drive change.

Determined to provoke real action, New Zealand teenagers nationwide join the global School Strike 4 Climate. But planning a movement and building momentum are the easy parts as they face political indifference, their own white privilege, and the ongoing struggle to be heard, as the tides continue to rise.
