The figure of the fight against climate change Greta Thunberg announced on Friday August 20 that she now hoped to be able to attend the great COP26 climate conference in Glasgow (Scotland) next November. “I heard that all participants will be offered a vaccine – so if it is considered safe, I hope to be able to attend.”, she said during a demonstration in front of the Swedish Parliament in Stockholm (Sweden).
In April, she threatened not to attend the event “due to the extremely inequitable distribution of vaccines”. The 18-year-old Swede called on rich countries in April to share their doses of Covid-19 vaccines with populations at risk in poor countries “rather than vaccinating healthy young people”. “If this is not possible, I suggest pushing back [la COP26] so that everyone can participate in the same conditions “, had declareda figure of the movement “Fridays for Future” and the strikes of the school for the climate.
