– ROME, AUGUST 20 – Greta Thunberg said today that she hopes to be able to participate in the big COP26 climate conference in Glasgow in November, four months after threatening not to go due to unequal access to covid vaccines around the world .
“I have heard that all participants will be offered a vaccine, so if it is considered safe, I hope I can participate,” he told AFP. The Swede, who celebrated her 18th birthday in early January, announced in April that she did not want to go to COP 26 “due to the extremely unfair distribution of vaccines.”
The symbolic figure of the “Fridays for Future” movement and the climate school strikes had appealed to rich countries to share their doses with at-risk populations in poor countries “rather than vaccinating healthy young people”. “If this is not possible, I suggest postponing (COP26) so that everyone can participate under the same conditions”.
