SWEDISH teenager Greta Thunberg joined Belgian students who abandoned classes for the seventh Thursday in a row yesterday to march through Brussels in protest against climate change.
The 16-year-old first came to prominence when she addressed a European Union conference, chiding adults for their inaction in the face of such climatic global dangers.
She said children are being forced to miss school and protest because adults are not addressing climate issues quickly enough.
She told the European Economic and Social Committee plenary session that “we are school striking because we have done our homework” on the dangers facing the Earth.
Thunberg has become her generation’s voice on climate change after inspiring students around the world to go on strike to express their anger and angst over global warming.
