Climate activist Greta Thunberg sets sail to Europe again after the COP25 climate conference was moved to Madrid.
The teenage Swedish climate activist has arrived in Lisbon after making her second boat trip across the Atlantic in four months. She is expected to attend a demonstration at the COP25 climate conference in Madrid.
The head of the UN says he is "disappointed" in global efforts made to limit emissions at the international climate conference COP25 in Madrid. 200 countries pledged a "green revolution" on the first day.
The Swedish teen has been in North America for three months but now faces a race against time to get to COP25 in Madrid. The UN climate summit begins on December 2 and her journey will take two to four weeks.
Thanks, in part, to Greta Thunberg's activism, combating climate change is now at the top of the global agenda. But environmentalists doubt much progress will be made in Madrid as the climate conference kicks off.
