The world's most famous climate activist arrived in Calgary on Wednesday to kick off her time in Alberta.

Greta Thunberg announced on Oct. 12 that she would be visiting the province, and since then politicians, activists and people in the energy industry have requested time with the Swedish teen activist.

The local Fridays for Future group confirmed Thunberg was walking around downtown Calgary on Wednesday morning. However, as far as the group knows, Calgary is only a pit stop on the way to Edmonton, where she will participate in her weekly Fridays for Future strike at the Alberta Legislature.
