 Greta Thunberg is a Swedish environmental activist who gained international prominence for her efforts to address climate change. Born on January 3, 2003, Thunberg first gained attention in August 2018 when, at age 15, she started skipping school to protest outside the Swedish Parliament, demanding stronger action on climate change. She held a sign that read “Skolstrejk för klimatet” (School strike for climate). Thunberg’s activism quickly attracted media attention and inspired the “Fridays for Future” movement, where students around the world began striking from school to demand climate action. Thunberg’s speeches at international forums, such as the United Nations Climate Action Summit and the World Economic Forum, have garnered widespread attention for her blunt and impassioned calls for immediate action to combat climate change. She has received numerous awards for her activism, including being named Time magazine’s Person of the Year in 2019 and being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Thunberg continues to advocate for climate action, emphasizing the urgency of the issue and the need for governments and institutions to take decisive steps to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the impacts of climate change.


“ This is all wrong, i shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you. You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words.” – Greta Thunberg
“Richer countries such as Canada and Sweden need to get down to zero emissions much faster so people in poorer countries can heighten their standard of living by building the infrastructure we have already built, we’re not doing this because it’s fun or because we have a special interest in the climate or because we want to become politicians when we grow up. We’re doing this because our future is at stake.” – Greta Thunberg
