Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg poses against a placard that reads 'School Strike for Climate.'
Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg invested in new eponymous foundation with the prize money from an international award “to promote ecological, climatic and social sustainability as well as mental health.”
In December 2019, Thunberg received the Right Livelihood Award, often quoted as the ‘Alternative Nobel Prize,’ for her inexhaustible efforts in rallying against political inaction in the face of calamitous and urgent climate change.
Following the 17-year-old’s Instagram statement earlier in January, The Right Livelihood Foundation cosigned the decision to donate the awarded sum of 1 million kronos (approximately $102,800) to the establishment of The Greta Thunberg Foundation.
“Both urgent and long-term actions are needed to stop climate change and create societies that are sustainable from multiple perspectives. Mental illness is a growing problem around the world, which is often overlooked. We are convinced that Thunberg’s new foundation will have a great impact and empower much-needed change,” commented the executive director of the Award Foundation, Ole von Uexkuell.
Thunberg states that her non-profit organisation will allow for a more “transparent” handling of funds sourced from donations, book royalties and prize money, rejecting a philanthropic approach.
While the activist prepares to launch her own green foothold in precarious times, this week Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos dedicated nearly 12 per cent of his net worth to combat climate change through the initiation of the Bezos Earth Fund.
Thunberg is marching to the UK next to join young climate protesters in Bristol on February 28.
Taking a bite, the plate does not have much of a flavour. It calls to mind dry cereal flakes or maybe what you would imagine cardboard to taste like. But Wysocki says what matters is the tableware is biodegradable.
Teenage climate campaigner Greta Thunberg said the "war on nature must end" and called on Donald Trump to listen to science after she sailed into New York on a zero-emissions yacht Wednesday.
She will join a hall of fame of Swedish personalities, from Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Greta Garbo, who have been depicted on the country's postage stamps.
The FAHR on Wednesday announced the launch of smart screens, signboards and real-time reports on the developments of the epidemiological situation of COVID-19 at the federal government level.
“I declined to answer the questions under the rights and privileges afforded to every citizen under the United States Constitution,” Trump said in a statement.
The cronyism, press muzzling, peril and horrors of the 20-year Martial Law in the Philippines from September 21, 1972, heavily shrouded the idealist rebirth of a nation and 36 years after the Romualdez-Marcos clan was ousted on February 25, 1986 through the historic peaceful People Power, that “bad taste in the mouth,” have yet to be expelled.
