The Swedish teen joined a group of young people protesting at the venue of U.N. climate talks.

Later Friday, she is scheduled to join thousands of other young people in a march to demand negotiators and politicians take real action in tackling the planet’s rising temperatures. Separately, an alliance of U.S. states, cities, academic institutions and businesses opened its own venue at the U.N. talks to show that many Americans remain committed to the Paris accord despite the federal administration's decision to pull out of the pact.
