Greta has become the face of climate change activism, especially pertaining to the voices of the youth and has encouraged millions of people throughout the world to participate in organized climate strikes.
She had come to limelight after her speech at the United Nations Assembly wherein she had accused world leaders of running a “creative PR” campaign but failing to effectively take climate change.
She was even named as Time’s 2019 Person of the Year for her efforts to spread awareness on climate change and for calling worldwide leaders to take immediate and decisive action.
