This is the true meaning of girl power. Greta Thunberg joined climate activists Vanessa Nakate from Uganda, Dominika Lasota from Poland and Mitzi Tan from the Philippines to address world’s leaders in Scotland’s UN Climate Change Conference and ask a stop of several actions that contribute to the acceleration of climate emergency.

In a letter signed by the five young climate activists, they enlist 5 key actions that must be done immediately to face climate change.

They start by declaring a betrayal by world governments to younger generations because the have failed to cut carbon emissions. 

“This is not a drill. It’s code red for the Earth. Millions will suffer as our planet is devastated — a terrifying future that will be created, or avoided, by the decisions you make. You have the power to decide”, they wrote.

As well, they propose 5 key actions that require urgent attention to stop or deaccelerate catastrophic consequences:

  • Keep the goal of 1.5°C alive with immediate, drastic, annual emission reductions unlike anything the world has ever seen.
  • End all fossil fuel investments, subsidies, and new projects immediately, and stop new exploration and extraction.
  • End creative carbon accounting by publishing total emissions for all consumption indices, supply chains, international aviation and shipping, and the burning of biomass.
  • Deliver the $100bn promised to the most vulnerable countries, with additional funds for climate disasters.
  • Enact climate policies that protect workers and the most vulnerable, and reduce all forms of inequality.
  • Besides the letter, which you can sign in this website, the young activists gathered thousands of protesters to let them voices be heard in Scotland by leaders participating in the COP26.
