Greta Thunberg, an environmental activist from Sweden who has urged a response to climate change, returned to school after a year after completing a "gap year."
Thunberg posted a picture of her carrying her bag on Twitter, saying, "The gap year is over, and I'm so happy to finally come back to school." A gap year is the period of cessation and career search during the last year of high school. Thunberg traveled around the world during this period, devoted to reporting the climate crisis.
Thunberg, who was originally invited as a speaker at the COP25, which was scheduled to be held in Santiago, Chile in December of last year, has crossed the Atlantic Ocean on a yacht since August of that year to point out the excessive carbon emissions from flight operations. At the time, when the assembly site was changed to Spain due to an anti-government protest in Chile, Thunberg headed to Spain in the boat of an Australian couple traveling nearby.
While sailing on a yacht, Thunberg attended the “UN Climate Action Summit” held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York in September last year.
Sweden is a country that has taken loose quarantine measures even after the spread of COVID-19 and has not closed schools. It is not yet known which university Thunberg will attend.
