Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old environmental activist has been in the news lately for taking a stern stand and asking the children of the world to fight for a clean and livable environment.
Thunberg's perspective to stand up for the environment has finally come into action and the youth have organised a global strike today. Over 150 countries so far have joined this global climate strike to pressurize world leaders to take some concrete action against climate change.
Tomorrow we strike back!— Greta Thunberg (@GretaThunberg) September 19, 2019
