Thousands of students skipped school for the third week in a row and more than 30,000 gathered in the centre of Brussels on Thursday to demand better protection of the world's climate.

What started out as a march of a few thousand high school students swelled to a mass movement that also included many university students.

Brussels police said around 32,000 people braved the snowy conditions to join the demonstration.

Another climate march is scheduled for Sunday.
