Greta Thunberg will not participate in climate strikes on Fridays because she has finished high school

Greta Thunberg will not participate in climate strikes on Fridays because she has finished high school

Greta Thunberg took part in final climate strike after graduation on Friday, but vowed to keep protesting, writes BBC.

“I graduate today, which means I won’t be able to take part in a school strike for climate anymore”

Thunberg, 20, wrote on Twitter. Swedish students usually finish high school by the age of 19, but Greta took a year off to campaign. He was 15 years old when he started protesting in front of the Swedish Parliament in 2018.

Thunberg’s individual protest has led to various movements across Europe, the United States and Australia known as Friday for Future or School Strike for Climate. Greta represents the struggle of young people for the world to get rid of fossil fuels that are heating the planet.

He simply refers to himself as an “autistic climate activist” in his Twitter bio, frequently berates and debates world leaders on the international stage, and was once nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Earlier this year, he was briefly arrested at a protest in Germany. He made clear in a tweet on Friday that he had no intention of stopping the protest.

“Those of us who can raise our voices have a duty to do so. For everything to change we need everyone.” I will continue to protest every Friday, even if it is not technically a “school strike”. We simply have no choice but to do whatever we can. The fight has just begun.”
