Greta Thunberg has announced that he will cross the Atlantic to attend the COP25 summit on climate change in Madrid traveling aboard the catamaran 'La Vagabonde' , with the Australian couple Riley Whitelum and Elayna Carausu , who are going around the world and who responded to the appeal of the Swedish activist.
"The COP25 is extremely important and I will do my best to arrive on time, " Greta Thunberg said in a press release, without specifying whether he could be in Madrid for the start of the summit on December 2, although possibly joining the Climate strike on day 6. "Of course it doesn't matter if I arrive or not on time . There are countless activists who will speak and deliver the same message, it's not that my voice is irreplaceable."
"I am looking forward to sailing and returning to the ocean," said the activist, who refuses to travel by plane for not contributing to CO2 emissions and arrived in New York in September after two long weeks of crossing the zero-emission sailboat 'Malizia ' , with Pierre Casiraghi as' godfather' and accompanied by his father Svante .
"Ten days ago, COP25 was transferred from Santiago to Madrid, when I was on my way to Mexico to continue on my way to Chile," Thunberg explained. "So I called on social networks in case someone could help me find transportation back to Europe."
"Of course, finding a boat prepared to cross the Atlantic in November is not easy," he added. "But it is amazing to see how many people have offered to help . Sailing, I want to emphasize once again the fact that it is basically impossible to lead a sustainable life in our society."
"We saw Greta's request for help and decided to offer our help because we sympathize with her cause," Rily Whitelum explained. "I used to work on oil rigs, but I am very happy to be able to live the lifestyle I lead today, using the wind to move around the world. We have seen the beauty of the planet from a very close distance, and it is something we must protect."
British pilot Nikki Henderson will join the crew to try to complete the journey on time. "Greta's determination to defend what she believes has inspired me," Henderson said.
"Motivating people around the globe to work for a common goal, she is defending our valuable world against the coming storm. It is an absolute honor to help her reach Europe . The oceans are my office and my life. Contribute to this mission to protect our natural world is a privilege. "
