Time Magazine has named their 2019 person of the year.
It’s 16 year-old climate change activist, Greta Thunberg of Sweden.
Thunberg started a world wide campaign for the Climate Strike, traveling world wide on boats to reduce her carbon footprint.
She is also the inspiration for the Fridays for the Future climate strike that many schools, including SUNY Broome and Binghamton University participated in.
Thunberg began as a sole protester outside of the Swedish parliament, and is now a world wide phenomenon and has been received both positively and negatively.
She will continue her travels in the new year, as she has taken a gap year from school.
