Even out here in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean I hear about the record amount of devastating fires in the Amazon. My thoughts are with those affected. Our war against nature must end.

Malizia 2 is fitted with solar panels and hydro generators making it one of the very few ships in the world allowing trips like this to be emission free.
Malizia 2 also has an onboard lab to measure ocean surface CO2 and water temperature in cooperation with Max Planck institute.

Day 8. 42° 25’ N 39° 27’ W. At sea you really loose sense of time and you can’t separate the days. You sleep, eat, look at the ocean.

Day 7. About halfway across the Atlantic Ocean. Very pleasant conditions.

One year ago I started school striking for the climate outside the Swedish parliament, simply because something had to be done. Since then I have continued every Friday alongside millions of others. And we will go on for as long as it takes. #FridaysForFuture #SchoolStrike4climate

Eating and sleeping well and no sea sickness so far. Life on Malizia II is like camping on a roller coaster!

Day 2. 100 nautical miles west of Cape Finisterre. A very bumpy night but I slept surprisingly well. Some dolphins showed up and swam along the boat last night!

Our war against nature must end. Read more about the background of the Hambach forrest at link in bio. #HambiBleibt #ecologicalbreakdown #ecologicalemergency #keepitintheground #endcoal

This week over 450 schoolstrikers from 38 countries have met in Lausanne for the SMILE meeting.
I’m amazed how much we managed to accomplish in such a short period of time.
It really shows the strength of our movement. Thank you everyone for a great time!!

Team Malizia has of course got sponsors. But for the trip with me to New York there are no commercial sponsors. All commercial sponsor logos have been removed.‬
That was of course a dealbreaker for me.
‪No money or future payments are involved. They offered me a free ride because they support my cause.‬

‪Good news!‬
‪I’ll be joining the UN Climate Action Summit in New York, COP25 in Santiago and other events along the way.‬
‪I’ve been offered a ride on the 60ft racing boat Malizia II. We’ll be sailing across the Atlantic Ocean from the UK to New York in mid August.‬
The science is clear. We must start bending the emissions curve steeply downwards no later than 2020, if we still are to have a chance of staying below a 1,5 degrees of global temperature rise. We still have a window of time when things are in our own hands. But that window is closing fast. That is why I have decided to make this trip now. During the past year, millions of young people have raised their voice to make world leaders wake up to the climate and ecological crisis. Over the next months, the events in New York and Santiago de Chile will show if they have listened. Together with many other young people across the Americas and the world, I will be there, even if the journey will be long and challenging. We will make our voices heard. It is our future on the line, and we must at least have a say in it. The science is clear and all we children are doing is communicating and acting on that united science. And our demand is for the world to unite behind the science.

‪Yesterday I posted a photo wearing a borrowed T-shirt that says I’m against fascism. That T-shirt can apparently to some be linked to a violent movement. I don’t support any form of violence and to avoid misunderstandings I’ve deleted the post. And of course I am against fascism.‬

School strike week 49. The climate crisis doesn’t go on summer holiday, and neither will we.
