Today on #YouthDay  social media is filled with people praising youth for leading on climate action, along with countless of other issues. Youth commitment is truly great, but make no mistake - we have no desire to “lead”. It’s just that someone has to be the adult in the room.

School strike week 100! 100 weeks ago I never would have believed that I’d still be doing this today... Since then, a lot has happened. Many millions have taken to the streets to continue the decades-long and never-ending fight for climate- and environmental justice. 1/4

I’m extremely honoured to receive the Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity. We’re in a climate emergency, and my foundation will as quickly as possible donate all the prize money of 1 million Euros to support ... -> 1/3

So-called ”climate denialism” is no longer the problem. But rather the general ignoring and belittling of the climate emergency. As this sends signals that the situation is under control and real action is being taken - while the crucial 1.5-2°C goals are slipping out of reach.

Right now millions are suffering from extreme flooding fuelled by the climate crisis in India and Bangladesh - already hit by the devastation of cyclone Amphan and COVID-19. My foundation will donate €100.000 prize money to BRAC, Goonj, Action Aid India- and Bangladesh. 1/3

“The last fully intact ice shelf in the Canadian Arctic has collapsed, losing more than 40% of its area in just two days at the end of JulyLarger than the island of Manhattan... #FaceTheClimateEmergency 

This morning I received an urgent call for help from @FffMauritius  ”We are a small tropical island with limited resources. Please can you help us? We need special equipments to remove the oil from our coasts and sea.” Here’s a crowdfund they recommend:

Of course the oil and shipping companies should be the ones paying for the damage they have done. But since they obviously don’t care - please donate if you can. My foundation will donate 100.000sek (ca € 10.000) #KeepItInTheGround  #MakeEcocideACrime
