19:42 23/02/2020

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg will be back in Brussels on 6 March to take part in a European climate strike.

The march has been organised by Youth for Climate and will start at 14.00 outside Central Station.

Thunberg will be present alongside representatives from several European climate campaign groups.

"We want to see all the people in Belgium on the street to strike with us," she said in a video message, posted on the Instagram account of Belgian climate activist Anuna De Wever.

Youth for Climate said: "Youth from all over Europe, joined by Greta Thunberg, will strike in Brussels.

"The EU Green Deal needs to show the world that Europe is taking a leading role in fighting climate change.

"We need you, all of you, to join us in the streets to make this message clear."
