Greta Thunberg is asking for help to get back to Europe

The climate activist needs transport after the COP25 meeting was moved from Chile to Spain

Greta Thunberg needs a ride back to Europe after the UN’s annual climate change conference was moved to Spain amid anti-government protests in Chile.

In August, the activist travelled for 14 days via boat to the US to join record-breaking climate strikes and speak at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York, before heading to Chile for the COP25 conference.

Writing on Twitter, Thunberg said: “As #COP25 has officially been moved from Santiago to Madrid I’ll need some help. It turns out I’ve travelled halfway around the world, the wrong way :) Now I need to find a way to cross the Atlantic in November… If anyone could help me find transport I would be so grateful.” 

Refusing to fly, the teen has been travelling by boat, train, and an electric car borrowed from Arnold Schwarzenegger since her arrival in the US.

On Friday, Thunberg met Leonardo DiCaprio who posted a photo of the pair on Instagram. The caption read: “There are few times in human history where voices are amplified at such pivotal moments and in such transformational ways, but Greta Thunberg has become a leader of our time.” Last week, the teen also declined an environmental award from the Nordic Council, because “the climate movement does not need any more awards”. 

With just under a month to go until the COP25 conference, Thunberg has just a couple more weeks until she needs to set sail and return to Europe. Anyone with a boat in America: give her a call.
