Thunberg, whose movement Fridays For Future has led to massive street protests across the globe, said activists must continue to “pushing” for real change.

“As it is now, this COP will not lead to any big changes, we’re going to have to continue pushing,” she told news agency AFP after attending a climate change concert in Stockholm.

The COP26 meeting in Scotland, which is due to take place from October 31 to November 12, will be the largest climate change meeting of its kind since the landmark talks in Paris in 2015 and is said to be a key step in setting global emissions targets to slow global warming.

Thunberg emphasized the need to shift the focus from trying to fill loopholes to “actually saving the planet”

The Glasgow meeting will try to persuade the large developing nations to do more to cut their carbon dioxide emissions and make the rich world spend billions more to help poorer nations adapt to climate change.
