Environment activist Greta Thunberg will cruise from the United States to a UN environment top in Spain by riding with two cruising YouTubers.
The 16- year-old had planned to travel to Chile, but the country pulled out of hosting the POLICE25 climate meeting since of protests there.
On Facebook, she revealed: “So delighted to say that I’ll ideally make it to COP25 in Madrid.”
She declines to travel by air since of its environmental impact.
Ms Thunberg had prepared to take a trip gradually to Chile through the Americas. 2 weeks back, she put out a call for assistance on social media.
However last month, Chilean President Sebastián Piñera announced that the South American nation could no longer host the occasion after severe anti-government protests.
