In her tweet, Licypriya mentioned how she is with her inspiration Greta Thunberg to give more pressure to all world leaders about climate change. The young activist has been holding talks, organizing awareness campaigns and rallies on climate change for quite some time now. She has also been helping victims of natural calamities.
In June this year, she stood outside the parliament to urge Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take appropriate steps to save the environment.
Herald Publicist quoted Licypriya saying, “I urge him and all MPs to act on climate change now and save our future. The sea levels are increasing and the Earth is becoming hotter. They should act now.”
She has voiced concerns across several international platforms and in recognition of her good work, she was awarded the World Children Peace Prize for 2019.

PM Modi had also voiced his concerns about climate change during the United Nations Climate Action summit 2019. He had said that India will present a practical approach and roadmap on the issue.
We’re so proud and happy that India is taking efforts to spread awareness and find sustainable solutions to this grave issue that affects the entire world.
