Greta Thunberg’s speech in Lisbon 3.12.2019

“I am not travelling like this because I want everyone to do so. I am doing this to send a message that it is impossible to live sustainable today, and that needs to change. It needs to become much easier. We can’t require from everyone to rely on people like [ Sailing La Vagabonde ] to sail you across an ocean. That is absurd. We need to see it from a holistic point of view. We need to work together. We need to secure future living conditions for humankind. We fight not only for ourselves but for our children and grandchildren and for every single living being on earth. Everyone has to do everything they can to make sure they are on the right side of history. What we are demanding is that especially the people in power should listen to the science.”
