Environment activist Greta Thunberg will cruise from the United States to a UN environment summit in Spain by riding with two cruising YouTubers.

The 16- year-old had actually prepared to travel to Chile, but the country took out of hosting the COP25 climate conference since of demonstrations there.

On Facebook, she revealed: “So pleased to state that I’ll ideally make it to POLICE OFFICER25 in Madrid.”

She declines to travel by air due to the fact that of its environmental impact.

Ms Thunberg had planned to travel slowly to Chile through the Americas. Two weeks earlier, she put out a call for aid on social media.

However last month, Chilean President Sebastián Piñera revealed that the South American nation could no longer host the event after serious anti-government demonstrations.

Ms Thunberg will now cruise from Virginia in the United States to Spain on the French 48 ft sailing catamaran La Vagabonde.

She will travel with Australian YouTubers Riley Whitlum and Elayna Carausu, along with Briton Nikki Henderson – who is a professional yachtswoman.

Their boat utilizes photovoltaic panels and hydro-generators for power.

Spain offered to host the summit at the end of October. About 25,000 people are expected to attend.
