Greta Thunberg Shares Powerful Reflection on Youth Climate Strike: "We Need a Whole New Way of Thinking"

By

For Greta Thunberg, striking from school to protest for the planet is just your average Tuesday. Well, more like your average Friday, considering the 16-year-old Swedish activist has been skipping school to do just that every Friday since August. But last week, on Friday, March 15, Greta led her biggest protest yet: the Youth Climate Strike, in which more than 1.5 million students from around the globe rallied to demand change from government leaders, as per 350.org. But even though the strike is over, Greta is not slowing down. Over the weekend, Greta took to Facebook to reflect on the strike, and to share how she thinks the world needs to work together to mitigate the climate crisis.

If you're looking for Greta's "solution" to the climate crisis, know that she does not have a straightforward answer — instead, she wrote that we "urgently need a holistic view to address the full sustainability crisis and the ongoing ecological disaster." To clarify, she explained that "solving" the climate crisis would be defined as "dramatically lowering our emissions."
