The Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg’s life will be documented in a project called ‘A Year to Change the World’, the BBC and PBS announced.
The three-part TV series will focus on Thunberg’s climate change cause and her motivations as a young activist. “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”, said Rob Liddell, the executive producer of the series and project, which started in August 2019 when Thunberg was just sixteen.
“To be able to do this with Greta is an extraordinary privilege, getting an inside view on what it’s like to be a global icon and one of the most famous faces on the planet”, he said. The series will also be following Thunberg’s journey into adulthood as she continues to be confronted by the real-world consequences of inaction.
