The globalist Davos World Economic Forum, often criticized for being out of touch with the real world, begins on Tuesday in Switzerland and organizers for the first time in its history, will welcome teenage “change-makers”, including climate change teen guru Greta Thunberg, Breitbart reports.
The World Economic Forum’s website states that “Greta Thunberg is part of a young generation fighting to change the world,” including fighting so-called man-made global warming and “gun violence.”
“The planet’s future is their future, so it’s more important than ever to give them a platform for their voices to be heard,” the article states.
The website profiles ten of the young ‘Change Maker’ activists, including the 17 year old Thunberg, whom the website states watched a documentary on climate change as an 8-year-old and she “stopped eating, she stopped speaking and she fell into depression” until she took action and started skipping school on Fridays last year to protest. Unlike the others, Thunberg has become something of a household name after her family’s promotion of the teen around the world, including sailing with her dad from Europe to the United States last summer in a solar-powered boat to speak at a United Nation’s climate change summit.
There are nine other teens the forum chose to profile and who will be attending the forum this week.
