“In the current state of things, this COP will not bring about big changes”, worried Greta Thunberg, two weeks before the launch of the COP26 for climate in Glasgow. According to the Swedish environmental activist, who spoke Saturday, October 16 on the sidelines a climate concert organized in Stockholm, “we will have to continue to push.”

In Scotland, states around the world will have from October 31 to November 12 to negotiate and commit more concretely to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. COP26 is therefore “crucial” and these international meetings “have the potential to make a difference”, according to the young Swedish girl.

“My hope, of course, is that we suddenly realize that we are facing an existential crisis and act on it.”
