The girl who sparked an international School Strike for Climate coming to the COP
Greta Thunberg to speak Monday, Dec 3, 3:00 – 3:30 pm, on School Strike for Climate
November 31, Katowice, Poland – Greta and her father, Svante Thunberg, will be attending this year’s COP and participating in several World Scientists Warning to Humanity Press Conferences.
Greta Thunberg achieved international recognition overnight when several months ago she began a one-woman SKOLSTREJK FÖR KLIMATET (School Strike for Climate) outside of the Swedish Parliament. Her no-nonsense, direct confrontation with Swedish politicians has inspired students in hundreds of schools both in Sweden and around the world to stage similar actions under the hashtag #ClimateStrike. When she returned to school finally, she persisted in striking every Friday. She can be found in all weather, outside the Swedish Parliament building. Her campaign is now also known on social networks as #FridaysForFuture and @FridaysForFuture.
Greta and Svante Thunberg will be attending this year’s UN climate negotiations, and they will participate in 4 half-hour press conferences sponsored by ScientistsWarning.org during the first week. Greta and her father are blood relatives, 4th and 3rd cousins respectively, of Svante Arrhenius, the Swedish scientist credited with alerting humanity that its CO2 emissions would heat the planet.
