‘At only 17-years-old, environmental activist Greta Thunberg has a beyond impressive resume to her name: globally applauded speaker, TIME’s youngest ever Person of the Year, Twitter clapback queen, and now, television star.
BBC Studios’ Science Unit announced on Monday that Thunberg would be getting her own TV show that highlights her journey to bring awareness to the world on climate change’s multiple effects on Earth. The series will follow Thunberg as she travels to around the world, speaking with scientists and climate change experts to discuss the impacts of climate’s global decline and what humans can do to reverse climate change in its current form.
Thunberg will also speak with politicians and business leaders about their present and future roles regarding climate change. The as-of-yet untitled show will follow Thunberg as she navigates the waters of young adulthood, too. Viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at Thunberg’s life as a teenager dealing with living in both a scrutinising and celebrated spotlight and how she handles it all. While the Nobel Peace Prize nominee hasn’t made her own statement on the show, she did retweet the BBC’s announcement of the series.’
