GRETA Thunberg has called on her followers to ‘give her a lift to Madrid’ for the COP25 climate summit.

It comes after a last-minute change of venue from Chile to the Spanish capital following civil unrest in the South American country.


Delegates were supposed to attend the event in Santiago, leaving the green activist, who refuses to travel by plane, in need of transportation.

The Swedish teen said she was now in need of a ride to Spain, having already made it to Los Angeles.

“It turns out I’ve travelled halfway around the world, the wrong way, if anyone could help me find transport I would be so grateful,” she said.

Thunberg’s journey to America involved a boat, train and electric car after the new venue was announced.
