About the Author

Greta Thunberg is a Swedish climate activist who was born on January 3, 2003, in Stockholm, Sweden. She grew up in a family that was environmentally conscious, and her parents taught her to respect nature and take care of the planet from an early age.

When Greta was 8 years old, she first learned about climate change and its potential impact on the planet. She became deeply concerned about the issue and began to study it in depth. As she learned more, Greta became increasingly frustrated that adults and politicians were not doing more to address the crisis.

In August 2018, when Greta was 15 years old, she decided to take action. She began a strike from school, sitting outside the Swedish parliament building in Stockholm with a sign that read "Skolstrejk för klimatet" ("School strike for the climate"). Greta's strike quickly gained attention, and soon other students began to join her.

Greta's strike inspired the "Fridays for Future" movement, in which students around the world skip school on Fridays to protest inaction on climate change. The movement quickly grew, and soon hundreds of thousands of students were participating in strikes and protests in cities around the world.

Greta has become an international figurehead for the climate movement, known for her impassioned speeches and uncompromising message. She has addressed world leaders at the United Nations Climate Action Summit, the World Economic Forum in Davos, and other high-profile events, calling on them to take action to address the climate crisis.

Thunberg has received numerous awards and accolades for her activism, including being named Time Magazine's Person of the Year in 2019. She has also been the subject of a documentary, "I Am Greta," which follows her activism and the impact she has had on the global climate movement.
