Fans and Media Crowd Around Greta Thunberg at UN Climate Conference

Large crowds met the teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg upon her arrival at the 2019 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Madrid on December 6.

Thunberg joined other youth activists who attended the conference to protest the lack of action on climate change by national governments.

Before heading to Spain, Thunberg arrived in Lisbon on December 3 after a three-week voyage across the Atlantic.
