barackobama16 JunYes we can, Greta. I’m hopeful because of you and all the young people who are fighting to protect the planet. Keep at it. https://t.co/sUBwC0uNW8239,67031,974

gretathunberg1 AugI am indeed ”deeply disturbed” about the fact that these hate and conspiracy campaigns are allowed to go on and on and on just because we children communicate and act on the science. Where are the adults? https://t.co/xDSlN0VgtZ117,54825,453

aoc23 JulyThe climate crisis will not wait for the comfort of politicians.
The consequences of a burning planet are coming, and the situation we leave our children will be proportionate to the courage (or lack thereof) we show now.
Greta‘s right. Unite behind the science – not lobbyists. https://t.co/O2r0kdRXAV

gretathunberg24 July“It’s almost like you don’t even know these numbers exist. As if you haven’t even read the latest IPCC report, on which much of the future of our civilisation is depending.”

gretathunberg24 JuneThis is Inga Zasowska, 13. She is school striking for the climate outside the Polish Parliament. She is a true hero, standing up for everyone’s future.
For this, she has received unimaginable amounts of hate. Please give her – and all others in her situation – your full support.

gretathunberg29 JulyGood news!
I’ll be joining the UN Climate Action Summit in New York, COP25 in Santiago and other events along the way.
I’ve been offered a ride on the 60ft racing boat Malizia II. We’ll be sailing across the Atlantic Ocean from the UK to NYC in mid August.

gretathunberg25 July”What I would like to ask all of those who question our so called ‘opinions’, or think that we are extreme, is: Do you have a different budget for at least a reasonable chance of staying below a 1,5° of warming? Is there another, secret Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change?” https://t.co/SnbRKea1Nr20,8876,421
gretathunberg31 JulyTeam Malizia has of course got sponsors. But for the trip with me to New York there are no commercial sponsors. All commercial sponsor logos have been removed.
No money or future payments are involved. They offered me a free ride because they support my cause. https://t.co/oS0HbnSRS6

truman_black27 JulyPeople want attention. You have it. You are powerful. You are an anti fascist. And I’m proud of you for it. People want to bring you down through the removal of context. You are the truth and people don’t like it. I love you x https://t.co/3EPsH6oHeh19,5692,373
gretathunberg27 JulyAll the solutions needed are not known to anyone and therefore we must unite behind the science and find them together along the way. But you don’t listen to that. Because those answers are for solving a crisis that most of you don’t fully understand. Or don’t want to understand. https://t.co/rZM8UjPXUE19,1865,978

gretathunberg29 JulyToday is World #OvershootDay
A day that sadly happens earlier and earlier each year.
That means that today we’ve globally used up the worlds annual resources. The rest of the year we are stealing from future generations and poorer parts of the world.

Are thought leaders influencers?

By Environmental, Political

Accountability for Sustainability?

Of our eight universities (many of which publicly state the need for a low carbon economy) only one The University of Waikato provides clear sustainability metrics (image shown above) in its annual report.

 

It is great that they are reporting on this – it would be even better to know how they are reducing and offsetting their emissions.

 

What about the other seven Universities – do you measure your environmental footprint are you able to report on your sustainability efforts are you able to minimise your Airmiles?

Approximately 340 thousand trees need to be planted every year to offset CO2 emissions produced from flights undertaken by our eight universities

Do we have ‘climate action’ leaders in government institutions?

They only way we know if government institutions are reducing their carbon emissions – is if they report on them. The University of Waikato is doing this, and other academic institutions need to follow and influence chance in their own ecosystems.

Accountable sustainability

Should it be mandatory that all government institutions provide clear and accessible information on how they are reducing and offsetting their carbon emissions?
