Sixteen-year-old Swedish student and environmental activist Greta Thunberg joined around 25,000 students in Berlin for the ‘Fridays for Future’ climate march on Friday.

Thunberg later addressed the crowd at the Brandenburg Gate expressing her disappointment with the older generation for a lack of action on the climate.

“When we say to them that we are worried about the future of our civilisation, they just pat on our heads saying: ‘Everything will be fine, don’t worry’. But we should worry.”

Thunberg emphasised the need for more concrete actions in salvaging the climate adding, “we still haven’t seen anything yet, this is only the beginning of the beginning, trust me.”

Thunberg who is planning to stay in Berlin until Sunday will also visit the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. On Saturday she will be honoured with a Golden Camera (film and television award) in the German capital.

Thunberg, who has been demonstrating on Fridays since August 2018 under the motto “School strike for the climate” in front of the Swedish Parliament in Stockholm, is now well-known all over the world as she has inspired climate strikes globally. For her activities Greta has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
