A chapter by chapter resource pack full of activities including comprehension questions, writing activities and cross curricular opportunities based on Greta’s Story, the bestselling biography of Greta Thunberg’s life. THE STORY OF GRETA THUNBERG THE SCHOOLGIRL WHO INSPIRED A WORLDWIDE CLIMATE CHANGE MOVEMENT. It’s August 2018 in Stockholm and it feels incredibly hot in the city. The news reports rising temperatures, and there have been numerous fires throughout Sweden. Fifteen-year-old Greta Thunberg decides she can’t wait any longer: politicians have to do something to save the environment. Instead of returning to school, Greta goes on strike in front of Sweden’s parliament building. Greta’s protest began the School Strike 4 Climate movement, which millions have now joined around the world. Greta has spoken at COP24, the UN summit on climate change, and has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. This is her story, but also that of many other girls and boys around the world willing to fight against the indifference of the powerful for a better future. Greta’s Story is one of hope, courage and determination. No one is too young to make a difference.
