Greta Thunberg (2003- )

Greta Thunberg (born 3 January 2003) is a Swedish environmental activist focused on the risks posed by climate change. In August 2018, when she was 15, Thunberg took time off school to demonstrate outside the Swedish parliament, holding up a sign calling for stronger climate action. Soon, other students engaged in similar protests in their own communities. Together they organized a school climate strike movement under the name Fridays for Future. After Thunberg addressed the 2018 United Nations Climate Change Conference, student strikes took place every week somewhere in the world. In 2019, there were at least two coordinated multi-city protests involving over one million pupils each. Thunberg is known for her blunt, matter-of-fact speaking manner, both in public and to political leaders and assemblies, in which she urges immediate action to address what she describes as the climate crisis. In May 2019, Thunberg was featured on the cover of Time magazine, which named her a 'next generation leader' and noted that many see her as a role model. Thunberg and the school strike movement were also featured in a 30-minute Vice documentary titled Make the World Great Again. Some media have described her impact on the world stage as the 'Greta Thunberg effect.' In September 2019 Thunberg addressed the United Nations Summit on climate change, held in New York City. She accused world leaders of stealing her dreams and her childhood with their inaction on climate change.
