Greta is what every leader is going to be paying attention to, an eloquent speaker and leader, who is taking the world by storm speaking up against climate change. Greta Thunberg at the young of age of 16, a Swedish activist whose hope is to save the world that she wants to see when she is older, has garnered national attention for her stance against climate change.

Greta was nominated by three Norweigen MPs for a Nobel Peace Prize, stating ‘the massive movement Greta has set in motion is a very important peace contribution, in relation to ‘climate threats are perhaps one of the most important contributions to war and conflict.’

She made national headlines after her eloquent speech on climate change at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Poland, “You are Stealing our Future.”

Greta is changing the world with her Fridays for Future, encouraging students to leave school that day and make notice for climate change. She has participated in “Fridays for Future” since the summer of 2018, by striking her classes with a sign reading “skolstreyk for klimatet.” (School Strike for Climate).

Just this past Friday, March 15, 2019, Greta organized one the largest marches, with students strikes and rallies around the world in more than 2000 locations in 123 countries, with thousands of youth rallying for climate change. #FridaysForFuture

She is a vegan and also encouraged her family to go vegan due to the affects of animal agriculture to our environment. One to change many.
