  • Age is no barrier to Dorothee Hildebrandt's climate activism.
  • The 71-year-old has cycled close to 2,500 kilometres from her home in Katrineholm to Scotland to attend the UN summit in Glasgow where countries will meet to discuss climate change.
  • "When a woman my age can cycle all the way to Glasgow for the climate then the political leaders can do all they can," she tells Radio Sweden.
