Protesters around the world have heeded the call sent out by activist Greta Thunberg to demonstrate against the ravages of climate change.
The 16-year-old, and the movement she inspired, have won the 2019 Ambassador of Conscience Award. Germany, meanwhile, confirmed aggressive action on climate change as its citizens prepare for mass protests on Friday.
The climate summit came just a day after millions of people took to the streets across the world as part of the Global Climate Strike. Thunberg hit out at older generations for doing little to curb carbon emissions.
