Swedish Environmental Activist, Greta Thunberg
“The climate and ecological crisis can unfortunately no longer be solved within today’s systems,” said Greta Thunberg to the Davos Group in January. Thunberg, a Swedish teen and worldwide phenomenon, is now 18 years old and has become internationally known for challenging world leaders to take immediate action against climate change.
At #DavosAgenda last month, Thunberg continues to urge world leaders to take immediate steps to address the environmental crisis and to stop trying to negotiate while not taking significant enough action now.
“Leaders should not forget previous commitments to action”, she said, urging them to “implement annual binding carbon budgets based on the current best available science.”
