Stockholm. Environmental activist Greta Thunberg arrives at a new postcard stamp in Sweden.
It writes Swedish Aftonbladet. The stamp is part of a series of stamps with the theme nature and environment.
The stamps will be launched on 14 January. Thunberg, who recently turned 18, is portrayed on the stamp standing on a cliff top, where she is watching a bird.
Graphic designer Henning Trollbäck designed the stamps. The Swedish postal service, PostNord, says that Greta Thunberg has deserved to get on the postage stamps with her strong voice in the climate debate.
– The design must reflect our time and the environmental problems that have been highlighted for years, not least through Greta Thunberg’s strong voice, says Stina Olofsdotter, head of PostNord’s stamp department, according to the news agency dpa.
Greta Thunberg is known for her fight for climate and environment, and she has gradually become a household name in most of the world.
She has spoken at several political summits. Among other things, in 2019, where she sailed by boat to New York to focus on how much CO2 air traffic emits.
In New York, where a climate summit was held, she gave a speech that later went viral around the world. In the speech, she repeatedly condemned the world leaders for not doing enough for the climate with the words: “Where do you dare?”.
Thunberg was only 15 years old when she began taking a weekly day off from school to demonstrate for the climate – inspired by young Americans protesting U.S. gun laws.
Alone and wearing a yellow rain jacket, she sat in front of the Swedish parliament with a poster with the caption “school strike for the climate”.
The silent protest quickly gained a lot of media attention, and the news of the young Thunberg accusing the world’s rulers of stealing the future of her generation spread around the world.
In 2018, she was invited to the podium at the UN climate conference in Poland, in 2019 she was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, and Time Magazine nominated her in the same year as the person of the year.
A Gallup poll revealed in late 2020 that Greta Thunberg is today one of the world’s most admired women.
