Climate change campaigner Greta Thunberg is coming to Bristol.
The 17-year-old will march through the city and give a speech as part of a Bristol Youth Strike For Climate demonstration next Friday (February 28).
Thunberg founded the youth strike movement in 2018 after she sat in solitude outside the Swedish Parliament building.
She is expected to give a speech to strikers gathered on College Green after marching through the city centre.
Thunberg is an internationally known activist, having spoken at the UN Climate Action Summit in 2019 and receiving two Nobel Peace Prize nominations. September 2019’s Global General Strike saw approximately 15,000 gathered on College Green and Greta’s high-profile presence as a figurehead for the global climate movement brings attention back to Bristol students’ fight for comprehensive climate policies. >
The march is due to start from College Green at 11am.
