Greta gets her own TV show
Greta Thunberg is no stranger to news. The Swedish teenager has been a vocal activist against climate change and is a household name now. She even spoke about global warming at the UN summit.
But now she’s getting her own TV show.
BBC Studios has announced a documentary series about the teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg. The new show will follow Thunberg’s “international crusade” against the climate emergency, focusing on her campaign work as well as her “journey into adulthood”. It will also see Thunberg meet with scientists, politicians and businesspeople to explore the evidence around rising global temperatures.
Stockholm-born Thunberg came to prominence after organising a school strike against the climate crisis in 2018, under the banner Fridays for Future. She has since gained global recognition, and has addressed the United Nations, been nominated for the Nobel peace prize in 2019 and 2020, and been named Time magazine’s person of the year 2019.

Greta has named Rosa Parks, the civil rights activist, as one of her greatest inspirations. In the 1950s, Rosa sparked a civil rights movement that improved the lives and treatment of millions of African Americans.
