Greta Thunberg returns to school in Sweden after year away


After a year off school to campaign for tougher action over climate change, Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg has said she is returning to class. “My gap year from school is over, and it feels so great to finally be back in school again!” the 17-year-old said on Instagram, next to a photo of herself with a schoolbag on her back and her hands resting on a bicycle handlebar. In Sweden, high school-level classes are returning this week. It was not clear which school Ms Thunberg was attending.
