One year ago I started school striking for the climate outside the Swedish parliament, simply because something had to be done. Since then I have continued every Friday alongside millions of others. And we will go on for as long as it takes. #FridaysForFuture #SchoolStrike4climate

This week over 450 schoolstrikers from 38 countries have met in Lausanne for the SMILE meeting. 
I’m amazed how much we managed to accomplish in such a short period of time. 
It really shows the strength of our movement. Thank you everyone for a great time!!

‪Good news!‬
‪I’ll be joining the UN Climate Action Summit in New York, COP25 in Santiago and other events along the way.‬
‪I’ve been offered a ride on the 60ft racing boat Malizia II. We’ll be sailing across the Atlantic Ocean from the UK to New York in mid August.‬
The science is clear. We must start bending the emissions curve steeply downwards no later than 2020, if we still are to have a chance of staying below a 1,5 degrees of global temperature rise. We still have a window of time when things are in our own hands. But that window is closing fast. That is why I have decided to make this trip now. During the past year, millions of young people have raised their voice to make world leaders wake up to the climate and ecological crisis. Over the next months, the events in New York and Santiago de Chile will show if they have listened. Together with many other young people across the Americas and the world, I will be there, even if the journey will be long and challenging. We will make our voices heard. It is our future on the line, and we must at least have a say in it. The science is clear and all we children are doing is communicating and acting on that united science. And our demand is for the world to unite behind the science.

These are the most powerful words on the climate and ecological emergency I’ve ever heard.

Listen to Charles Norman Shay, a Native American D-Day veteran who was in the first wave and landed on Omaha Beach 06.30h June 6th, 1944.

Today I received the #prixliberte in Normandie, France. Here is a part from my speech:
“Yesterday I spent the day with the D-day veteran Charles Norman Shay at Omaha beach. It was a day I will never forget. Not only because of the unimaginable bravery and sacrifices made by those who gave their lives to defend the freedom and democracy of the world. But also because they managed to do the seemingly impossible possible. 
I think the least we can do to honour them is to stop destroying that same world that Charles, Léon and their friends and colleagues fought so hard to save for us.
We owe it them.
We owe it to the future generations.
We owe it to ourselves.” So honoured and grateful to receive this prize!

Today I had the honour of spending the day with Charles Norman Shay at Omaha Beach in Normandie. Charles was in the first wave that spearheaded D-Day and landed at 06:30 on June 6th. He is also Native American and member of the Penobscot tribe of Maine. He is a hero in a way that is almost impossible for us to understand. So grateful and humbled to have met him!
