Greta Thunberg  

Tuesday, December 3, 2019. Lisboa.

Climate activist Greta Thunberg, upon arrival at the port of Lisbon,  after a 19 day voyage across the Atlantic Ocean. 

The Swedish teen sailed from the United States to the Portuguese capital before heading to neighbouring Spain to attend the Climate Change Conference taking place in Madrid.

Greta had planned to attend COP 25 Conference in Chile, but last minute political unrest meant the talks moved to Spain. She sailed aboard La Vagabonde, property of Elayna Carouse and  Riley Whitelum, with the help of  Nikky Henderson, a British professional yachtswoman.
