The social summit for the climate takes place from the 7th to the 13th of December during the COP25 Climate Conference.

Greta’s appearance today comes after she said on Friday that the global wave of school strikes for the climate over the past year has ‘achieved nothing’ because greenhouse gas emissions have continued to rise. 

She said that although schoolchildren had been striking around the world, this ‘has not translated into action’ from governments. 

In her speech she also warning world leaders that a growing youth-led protest movement meant they could no longer hide.
