Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old Swedish girl, sparked the “Climate strikes” in November 2018 by sitting alone with a sign outside the Swedish parliament. Millions of young people and supporters have since joined her call to action.

Thunberg spoke before the United Nations on September 23 demanding world leaders take climate change seriously and act accordingly.
