Who is Greta Thunberg?

Greta Thunberg is a Swedish environmental activist highly focused on the risk posed by climate change. This teen took an initiative starting August 2018 taking time off school to hold a protest outside the Swedish parliament calling for extreme climate action. She has since been the leader of numerous students following her to protest in the community.

How did she emerge?

Greta strived to look out for a change by organizing school climate strike movement every week calling it ‘Fridays for Future.’ Since then Miss Thunberg has urged world leaders to take immediate, necessary actions to address the ‘climate crisis’ in all her speeches. Galvanising a new vibe of climate change activism, she became the voice of the degrading environment and climate ever since she came in action.

This climate activist from Sweden was the star of the UN Climate summit that indeed reminded everyone in the gathering of key responsibilities like leadership, courage and sacrifice. This major summit came days after millions of youngsters took to the streets and demanded an immediate action on climate change from the leaders.

She was invited in the 2018 UN Climate Summit to post which student strikes were unstoppable.

This girl called world leaders out for their malign neglect in failing to address the major existential threat humanity face.

This also splurged agitating reactions from other leaders when Donald Trump decided not to participate in the UN Climate summit which illustrated his climate-denying policies.  She blasted off the world leaders for failing and doing nothing while the whole ecosystem is collapsing around the globe.
