Born in Sweden on January 3, 2003, Greta Tintin Eleonora Ernman Thunberg is an environmental activist. She gained international fame, promoting the view that we face a momentous crisis from climate change that will affect humanity itself.
The opera singer Malena Ernman is her mother, and her father is actor Svante Thunberg. Her paternal grandfather was actor and director Olof Thunberg.
Thunberg is known for her youthful looks and direct way of talking, either when addressing political leaders or the public. She criticizes world leaders for their inability to make adequate moves to address the climate crisis.
Greta Thunberg Mental Health
Thunberg says her first experience with climate change came in 2011 when she was just eight years old. Greta failed to understand why so little was being done about it. She stopped talking and eating, losing ten kilograms (22 lb) in two months. Greta was later diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), selective mutism, and Asperger Syndrome. During a speech early on in her fight against global climate change action, Thunberg described her selective mutism as “I only speak when necessary.” Greta battled depression for years before she started her school strike. At the point when she began dissenting, her folks didn’t bolster her activism. Her dad said he doesn’t care for her missing school; however stated, she can protest and be happy or stay home and be unhappy. We respect her wanting to make a stand.
Her Asperger diagnosis was shared across the Swedish nation by her mom in May 2015 to help different families in comparable circumstances. While recognizing that her analysis “has limited me before,” Thunberg doesn’t see her Asperger’s as sickness and has instead called it her “superpower. “
Greta Thunberg Activism
For around two years, Thunberg challenged her parents to bring down the family’s carbon footprint and by and large effect on the earth by becoming a veggie-lover, upcycling, and giving up flying. A failed attempt to show her family proof with graphs and other information resulted in her stating they were stealing her future. Giving up flying to a limited extent implied her mother needed to surrender her international profession as a drama singer. Thunberg credits her parents’ possible response and lifestyle changes by giving her expectations and conviction that she could have any effect. The family history is recounted in the 2018 book Scenes from the Heart.

- School strike for climate
