An 18-year-old British activist, Mya-Rose Craig, staged a protest against climate change by sitting on a floating ice sheet in the Arctic Ocean and holding a “Youth Strike for Climate” placard.

As reported by Reuters, Mya-Rose said, “ I’m here to… try and make a statement about how temporary this amazing landscape is and how our leaders have to make a decision now in order to save it”

“I absolutely think that my generation has always had to think about climate change… which is why as we’ve got older there’s been this massive wave of just this need for change, this demand for change when we realised the grown-ups aren’t going to solve this so we have to do it ourselves,” she added

She has travelled hundreds of miles above the Arctic Circle aboard a Greenpeace ship, Arctic Sunrise.
