Activist says calls to break from fossil fuels have been ignored at World Economic Forum
Greta Thunberg has criticised world and business leaders for ignoring calls to break away from fossil fuels, as young people protested in Davos over the climate emergency.

Davos is a Swiss ski resort now more famous for hosting the annual four-day conference for the World Economic Forum. For participants it is a festival of networking.

The meeting is sponsored by a huge number of international banks and corporations.
