Meet the other Greta Thunbergs at the first-ever U.N. Youth Climate Summit

Read the full story from Grist.

Less than 24 hours after young people took to the streets for what was probably the largest climate protest in history, hundreds of youth organizers and young environmental leaders from around the world were up bright and early Saturday morning at the U.N. headquarters in New York City for the first-ever Youth Climate Summit.

A few notable names such as Greta Thunberg, Jamie Margolin, Alexandria Villaseñor, and Isra Hirsi held court in busy U.N. halls and chambers, giving media interviews and demanding that world leaders take climate action. But in quieter corners of the U.N. complex, where people weren’t flocking, Grist spoke to a handful of unknown Gretas who are fighting no less vigorously than Thunberg for climate action.
