Activists really are at the forefront of turning passion into purpose, and this week we are joined by one of the most well-known climate justice activists on planet earth - Greta Thunberg!

Greta brought climate change into mainstream consciousness in a way nobody else has and captured the hearts and minds of a generation anxious about the future of our planet, but it all started with just one girl with a hand-painted sign sat on the ground outside the Swedish Parliament.

Greta talks about her life before activism, what led her initially to take action, and how realising that she was not alone in her desire to protect the planet has made her who she is today.  

Greta is definitely someone who has made the thing she’s most passionate about an intrinsic part of her identity, but understandably climate activism weighs heavy sometimes, and so we also learn how she unwinds – spoiler alert, it involves knitting needles and the macarena – and her approach to hope and despair.

Greta’s latest book The Climate Book is out now!
