Greta Thunberg, youngest person to be named “Time Person of the Year”

Greta Thunberg, 16 years old, environmental activist is chosen by Time’s Magazine as the “Times Person of the Year”. She is the youngest person to be named as the “Times Person of the Year.”

Born on 03 January 2003 in Sweden, Thunberg championed the cause of climate change.

Her journey began at the age of 15 when she missed her classes and began spending days outside the Swedish Parliament to take action on Global Warming. She held the sigh boards that read “School strike for the climate,” made headlines. Soon other students joined and they organised a School Climate Strike movement under the name Fridays for Future.

Since then, she has inspired millions of students to take up the cause of climate change and also integrate lifestyle changes.

In 2018 she addressed United Nations Climate Change Conference. This year she was also nominated for Nobel Peace Prize.
