How a 16-year-old became the voice of the planet

In the July / August issue of the British magazine Wired, Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg embraces the cover.

“I don’t see myself as a celebrity or icon or something like that” says Greta Thunberg in the interview with Wired.

To be described as the whole planet’s voice, however, does not seem to weigh on Greta Thunberg, who is happy to tone down his own significance for global climate activism.

“I have not really done anything, I have only decided that I will do this even if there is no hope. Missing hope is no excuse for not doing anything. Everyone says different things. Some say that we are already done and some say still have time”, says Greta Thunberg.

For Greta Thunberg there is only one goal with the engagement: “I just hope that this movement will continue and we do something about the climate – because that is the only thing that matters”.
