On 30 September, climate activists joined Greta Thunberg at a meeting with Italy's Prime Minister and current President of the G20 Mario Draghi to discuss climate change. Earlier, the 18-year-old activist lambasted world leaders for "30 years of blah, blah, blah".
Sputnik is live from Milan, Italy, as Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg is expected to join a climate protest, with demonstrators calling on politicians to take more action on climate change.
Earlier this week, Thunberg criticised governments around the world for "shamelessly congratulating themselves" over insufficient pledges to cut emissions and promises of financing, as she addressed delegates at the Youth4Climate summit in Milan, a three-day event ahead of the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow.
Thunberg's school strikes inspired a series of protests against climate change across the globe, called Fridays for Future. In December 2020, she was named Time magazine's Person of the Year.
