Quotes by Greta Thunberg

Greta Thunberg FRSGS is a Swedish teenage environmental activist on climate change whose campaigning has gained international recognition. Thunberg first became known for her activism in August 2018 when, at age 15, she began spending her school days outside the Swedish parliament to call for stronger action on global warming by holding up a sign saying "School strike for climate". Soon, other students engaged in similar protests in their own communities.
