Climate activist Greta Thunberg graduates from 'school strikes'

2023-06-09 13:15:50  • 2 mins

Greta Thunberg has said she had taken part in her final Friday climate "school strike" after graduating, but vowed to keep protesting.

"School strike week 251. Today, I graduate from school, which means I'll no longer be able to school strike for the climate," she said on Twitter.

Greta was 15 when she began protesting outside Sweden's parliament in 2018.

Carrying a "school strike for climate change" sign, she said she would only attend when politicians took action.
