Youth Activists Protest Against Climate Inaction At COP26

The rally led by Greta Thunberg comes as week one of the UN climate summit draws to a close amid calls for further commitments.


  • Two days of demonstrations, including a student march on Friday, were planned to highlight the disconnect between the glacial pace of emissions reductions and the climate emergency already swamping countries across the world, with thousands of people expected to take part.

  • “This is no longer a climate conference. This is now a global greenwashing festival,” Thunberg told cheering crowds. She called for an end to “empty promises”, climate commitments that are “full of loopholes” and ones that ignore climate justice.
