Greta Thunberg named Time’s Person of the Year

Swedish 16-year-old Greta Thunberg has been named Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2019.

Thunberg was the 16-year-old who inspired millions of young people to take action against climate change.

She organised a campaign for school students to demonstrate outside the Swedish parliament, pushing for her government to meet its ambitious goals to curb carbon emissions.

Her actions were quickly followed by millions of others around the world.

In the 16 months since her first protest she has addressed heads of state at the UN, met with the Pope, tweeted about the President of the United States and inspired 4 million people to join the global climate strike.

She is the youngest individual to have won the accolade.
