The current Croatian Environment Minister, Tomislav Coric, has met with one of the world’s most influential young people – Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg.
Greta Thunberg, a seventeen-year-old climate activist from Sweden, has taken the world by storm. Having started out by protesting alone outside the Swedish Parliament in a school strike for the climate, she quickly gained international fame, with schools joining her in her protest from across the globe.
She has also stirred up a significant amount of suspicion and dislike from those who either dispute her claims about climate change or have simply decided they don’t like her. Regardless of the varying opinions the world has on Greta Thunberg, who has since spoken at the UN, she has become known as the most influential climate activist on the face of the planet.
Tomislav Coric, the Croatian Environment Minister, met with Thunberg and expressed his gratitude and appreciation, as well as his support for everything she is doing.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 5th of March, 2020, the Croatian Environment Minister expressed his sincere support for Thunburg’s tireless work on climate change activities.
Tomislav Coric held a meeting with Ms Greta Thunberg in Brussels, Belgium, on the eve of the meeting of the Environment Council. Thunberg was invited by the Croatian Presidency itself to address the EU ministers.
Minister Coric expressed his support for the work Greta Thunberg is engaged in and the youth who have come together in the name of the Fridays for Future movement and expressed his commitment to activities to combat climate change.
