Climate activist Greta Thunberg leaves the UK from Plymouth to cross the Atlantic in a zero emission racing boat. Her trip to New York should take around two weeks. To avoid traveling by air, Thunberg is making her trans-Atlantic trip on board the 60-ft yacht, the Malizia II, fitted with solar panels and underwater turbines that produce electricity onboard, with the aim of making the journey zero-carbon. The 16-year-old will be accompanied by her father, Svante, and a cameraman on the journey. When she arrives, she will join the U.N. Climate Action Summit in New York in September and the COP 25 climate change conference in Santiago, Chile in December.
