The unlikely story of the rise of Greta Thunberg, a shy young student with Asperger’s who sparked a movement of school strikes around the world.
When it comes to the climate change movement, most people have heard of young environmental activist Greta Thunberg. For the past few years, Thunberg has had an active role in convincing world leaders to take immediate action to stop climate change. By the age of 18, Thurnberg had already spoken to the United Nations and received numerous awards for her dedication to the cause.
I Am Greta follows Thunberg from her one-person strike in 2018 outside the Swedish parliament to world recognition as an outspoken advocate for change. Watching her question world leaders—her statement, “How dare you,” directed at the UN’s lack of action is downright empowering—might make you want to take a more active role in protecting the environment yourself. Which is exactly Thurberg’s goal.
Surprising and inspiring, I Am Greta is a testament to the power of one voice — no matter the age.
Watch it with the disenchanted or disaffected student in your life.
