Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg will be the subject of a BBC series following her worldwide campaign against climate change and how the 17-year-old has dealt with the attention her activism has brought on her.
"Climate change is probably the most important issue of our lives so it feels timely to make an authoritative series that explores the facts and science behind this complex subject," BBC Studios executive producer Rob Liddell said. "To be able to do this with Greta is an extraordinary privilege, getting an inside view on what it's like being a global icon and one of the most famous faces on the planet."
Thunberg became known across the globe after organizing a "School Strike for Climate" outside of Swedish Parliament in 2018, and since then has gone on to address the United Nations on the subject of climate change.
"The series will follow Greta's international crusade, which takes her to the front line of climate change in some of the most extraordinary places on earth, as she explores what actions could be taken to limit climate change and the damage it causes," the BBC said in its announcement. "As she travels Greta meets not only leading scientists but political leaders and business heavyweights, exploring the scientific evidence with them and challenging them to change."
