About Greta Thunberg

17 year old Greta Thunberg has learned the power of using social media to transform her voice into a global movement on her rapid rise to international acclaim through grassroots efforts. Greta’s social media calls to action led to 2019’s #FridaysForFuture #schoolstrike4climate, rallying students and environmental supporters across the globe in advocacy against climate change, taking to the streets in multi-city protests and sharing across social platforms. Amassing 15M+ followers across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, she is continually honored with countless awards, like being named TIME Magazine’s 2019 Person of the Year.
