Greta took a year off from school to raise awareness about the problems our planet is facing because of climate change.

Greta sailed from Europe to North America and back again to other first world countries,  spoke at the United Nations forums, led a global climate strike in September, was invited to speak at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, and helped millions of people all over the world to think about the health of the planet.

The sad part about this is that very little changed despite the activism that she brought along with her.

Gretta said the earth has lost 2 crucial years to political inaction.

Along with Thunberg, Luisa Neubauer, Anuna de Wever, and Adelaide Charlier, fellow climate activists, said:

Looking back [over two years], a lot has happened. Many millions have taken to the streets…and on 28 November 2019, the European parliament declared a climate and environmental emergency. But over these last two years, the world has also emitted over 80bn tonnes of CO2. We have seen continuous natural disasters taking place across the globe. Many lives and livelihoods have been lost, and this is only the very beginning. When it comes to action, we are still in a state of denial. The gap between what we need to do and what’s actually being done is widening by the minute. Effectively, we have lost another two crucial years to political inaction.

The protest of Greta started in August 2018 when she stopped going to classes at her school.

Greta made headlines all over the world after she was seen holding signs about climate change in front of Sweden’s parliament.

In 2018, Sweden was hit by heatwaves, wildfires, and the country recorded its hottest summer in the last 250 years.

Her solo campaign started small, but within 1 year, millions of people all over the world marched to support the noble cause.

Greta said as of now she is going to school, but she will not give up her goal to help fight climate change.
