Greta Thunberg named Time magazine’s 2019 Person of the Year | ITV News

Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg, who became a global conscience for environmental change, has been named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2019.

The 16-year-old started a movement to fight climate change after protesting alone outside the Swedish parliament during school hours on Fridays when she was just 15 years old.

The teen held up a now world recognised hand painted sign that read “skolstrejk för klimatet,” which translates to “School strike for the Climate.”
