15 ára stúlka er í verkfalli í skólanum til að KENNA fullorðnum raunverulega lexíu!

Greta Thunberg er 15 ára sænsk stúlka sem er í verkafalli í skólanum. Hún ætlar að gera allt sem hún getur til að kenna fullorðnum raunverulega lexíu.



In Sweden, 15-year-old Greta Thunberg has been protesting inaction on climate change since August, going on strike from school every Friday to sit outside her country’s parliament. Greta writes for the Guardian Australia about why she believes Australian students should join her: „The adults have failed us. And since most of them, including the press and the politicians, keep ignoring the situation, we must take action into our own hands, starting today.“
