Greta Thunberg says the world needs to apply the lessons of the coronavirus with a similar urgency to climate change.
In an interview with the BBC, this young climate activist said she did not think a climate recovery plan alone would solve the crisis.
And she says the world is now reaching a social point on climate and issues like Black Lives Matter.
“People are starting to realize that we can’t look away from things,” says Thunberg.
“We cannot continue to ignore the injustices.”
