Crowd Greets Greta Thunberg at Port of Lisbon

Environmental activist Greta Thunberg was greeted by a crowd of people watching her sail into Lisbon, Portugal, on December 3.

The 16-year-old Swedish activist made the 21-day voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to attend the UN Climate Change Conference COP 25. The summit, held in Madrid, runs from December 2 to December 13.

Thunberg crossed the ocean aboard a catamaran belonging to Australian YouTubers Riley Whitelum and Elayna Carausu. Nikki Henderson, a yachtswoman from England, was also traveling with the group.
