Greta lands in New York
Malizia II with Greta Thunberg on board finally dropped its anchor in New York after a two-week carbon neutral voyage. The young Swedish activist was welcomed by the UN with a flotilla of 17 sailing boats, one for each sustainable development goal. It was 14 August when Malizia II set sail from Plymouth, in the United Kingdom, bound for New York. The only condition was the guarantee that the voyage would be carbon neutral, and so it was. Greta sailed for 3 thousand nautical miles (4,800 kilometres) accompanied by her father, the captain Boris Herrmann, Pierre Casiraghi, member of the royal family of the Principality of Monaco, and a Swedish documentary film maker, Nathan Grossman.
It should be remembered that Greta Thunberg, who has taken a year off school to continue her battle against climate change, will be taking part in the Climate Action Summit in New York due to be held on 23 September and in COP 25 in Santiago de Chile scheduled for December this year.
