Greta Thunberg and Donald Trump have traded veiled barbs at Davos as climate change and sustainability lead the agenda at the World Economic Forum.

The teenage activist told the world's political and business leaders that the global youth movement inspired by her school strikes are “just the very beginning” and warned Mr Trump's pledge to join an initiative to plant one trillion trees was "nowhere near" the action required to avert catastrophe.
