Speeches by Greta Thunberg

Join us! Global climate strikes! Spread the word!

The world's political leaders do not take responsibility for implementing the Paris agreement's goal of halting a global temperature increase well below 2 degrees. We no longer accept delays or ignorance against researchers' warnings. We show our determination by gathering outside of parliaments, townships and power houses around the world. Join where you are. Strike the way you can!


My name is Greta Thunberg. I am 15 years old and I come from Sweden. I am here at the United Nations Climate Change talks in Poland.

We are at week two of the negotiations here, and as of now there are no signs of commitments to climate actions. Our emissions are still increasing at the same time as the science has clearly told us that we need to act now to keep the planet within 1.5 degrees of warming.

Whoever you are, whereever you are, we need you now! This friday, the 14th of December, I'm calling for an international climate strike. Please strike with us! Stand outside your Parliament or local government office, even for just a short while, to let them know that we demand climate action.

Please share this video to spread the word, or make a video of your own and challenge your friends to do the same! Tell the world why you are striking or why you support the climate strike!
