1. Making An Impact

Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg has been making a huge global impact as a climate change activist. She kickstarted the global school climate strikes that have become a staggeringly huge phenomenon and she gave a passionate speech at the UN Climate Action Summit in September. In her speech, she shamed world leaders for their inaction and gave a call to arms to the citizens of the world.

2. Celebrity Admirers

Thunberg has also been traveling around the United States and met a number of people at the forefront of the climate fight. Actor and activist Leonardo DiCaprio is a fan, posting about their meeting and Thunberg's impact.

"There are few times in human history where voices are amplified at such pivotal moments and in such transformational ways – but Greta Thunberg has become a leader of our time. History will judge us for what we do today to help guarantee that future generations can enjoy the same livable planet that we have so clearly taken for granted. I hope that Greta’s message is a wake-up call to world leaders everywhere that the time for inaction is over."

3. Arnold's Approval

Arnold Schwarzenegger is the latest to lend his support to Thunberg, meeting up with her while she was in California to ride bikes and discuss activism.

"It was fantastic to see my friend and one of my heroes @GretaThunberg last week and go on a bike ride around Santa Monica together and I was so pumped to introduce her to my daughter Christina. Keep inspiring, Greta!"

4. Helping Her Make An Impact

Thunberg attended the Austrian World Summit in Vienna, organised by Schwarzenegger’s environmental organisation #R20 back in May, and the Terminator star also loaned her a Tesla Model 3 so she could travel in an electric, environmentally friendly care while she toured North America.
