At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Greta Thunberg described the global climate protection movement as the first step. "The climate and environment are hot issues now," she said. But that's not all. Without treating global warming as a real crisis, it cannot be solved, the activist warned.
Thunberg pointed out that not only they, but many young people worldwide had formed alliances. Many people are now more aware of climate change. Personally, she couldn't complain about attention. "But science and the voices of the younger generation are not at the center of the debate. But they have to," said the 17-year-old from Sweden.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos this year is also about climate change and sustainable capitalism. Around 2,800 participants and 53 heads of state and government are expected to attend the meeting. US President Donald Trump arrived on Tuesday morning to deliver a speech to the plenary at 11:30 a.m. Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) speaks on Thursday.
