Greta Thunberg is a Swedish student and climate activist based in Stockholm. She is the daughter of actor and author Svante Thunberg and opera singer Malena Ernman. Greta is known for her climate engagement. In particular, one action. Every Friday she school-strikes for the climate in front of the Swedish “Riksdagshuset” (parliament) with a poster that says: “skolestreik för klimaet”
Greta presented the speech, “Our house is on fire,” at the World Economic Forum, 2019 in Davos. Not only did Greta reach out to every corner of the world. She also raised young people’s voice. Importantly, the speech’s context surrounded climate change, a relevant message in our international society.
