Greta Thunberg is getting her own TV series on climate change

Swedish activist Greta Thunberg is getting her own TV series on climate change, the BBC has announced.

As per the television outlet's website, the 17-year-old, who rose to global fame after skipping school to protest the climate change crisis has agreed to document her efforts to save the planet in a documentary series.

It follows her campaign for global change to save the planet from environmental catastrophe, but it also addresses life for Thunberg and how being thrust into the spotlight at such an early age has affected her.

In the video below, Thunberg rebukes world leaders for failing to address the climate change crisis: 

The series is being created by BBC Studios' Science Unit. However, a potential release date and platform are not yet known.

The Executive Producer for BBC Studios, Rob Liddell, said: "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.

"To be able to do this with Greta is an extraordinary privilege, getting an inside view on what it's like being a global icon and one of the most famous faces on the planet."

Trump's former aide was slammed over this 'gross' joke about Greta Thunberg's body:

Thunberg's activism began in 2018 when she organized a "School Strike for Climate" in front of the Swedish Parliament. It has now evolved into a global movement that has become known as the #FridaysforFuture demonstrations.

Thunberg hit the headlines earlier this month after being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for a second year running. Meanwhile, in January, she once again rebuked world leaders at the World Economic Forum.

The Swedish activist, who was named TIME magazine's Person of the Year for 2019, stated: "Pretty much nothing has been done since the global emissions of CO2 has not reduced. If you see it from that aspect, what has concretely been done, if you see it from a bigger perspective, basically nothing ... it will require much more than this, this is just the very beginning."
