Pope meets teenage climate change activist Greta Thunberg
The 16-year-old invited the pontiff to join the climate strike.
Swedish teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg has brought her climate change campaign to the Vatican.
The 16-year-old met with Pope Francis and carried a sign saying “Join the climate strike”.
Francis went up to her at the end of the audience, where Ms Thunberg showed off her sign.
In Francis, Ms Thunberg has found a kindred spirit. The Jesuit pope has made fighting climate change and caring for God’s creation a pillar of his papacy.
