Who is Greta thunberg?

Greta Thunberg is a 16 years old born and raised in Stockholm sweden, She started making headlines in her home country, Sweden, in August 2018 when she began boycotting school on Fridays to stand outside of Parliament holding a sign reading “skolstrejk för klimatet,” or “school strike for the climate.” Later that year, she captured international attention with her speech at a U.N. conference for climate change.

Greta thunberg speeches on the environment

“You say you love your children above all else, and yet you are stealing their future in front of their very eyes,” she said at the time. “We have come here to let you know that change is coming, whether you like it or not. The real power belongs to the people.”

“People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing,” she said during her United Nations speech this past September. “We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!”

Reason for her nomination

Thunberg wields soft power so effectively that she was a 2019 finalist for the Nobel Peace Prize, making her one of the youngest nominees for the honor.

“People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing,” she said during her United Nations speech this past September. “We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!”

It is for this reason that she has earned the No. 100 spot on the 2019 list of the most powerful women in the world.

Who are Greta Thunberg parents?

Greta networthy

Greta Thunberg’s net worth is unconfirmed. 
Unlike famous people or celebrities whose regular work allows for estimates into their net worth, the 16-year-old school Child networthy is not disclosed.
However, in the speculations Greta’s parents, Svante Thunberg and Malena Ernman are an actor and opera singer respectively meaning that Greta has probably been well off in her upbringing.  


Does she get paid for her activism work?

There is the possibility that Greta’s notable presence on social media, which includes followers 3.2 million Twitter followers and 8.5 million Instagram followers, allows for some kind of ad revenue money but again this would be just speculation.
Earlier in 2019, a magazine cover was doing the rounds on social media claiming that Greta Thunberg is one of the highest-paid activists on Earth but according to Snopes and the look of the magazine cover itself, it’s quite clearly not genuine. Now, though, Greta Thunberg finds herself on quite a different magazine cover as she’s been named TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2019.
