The world is listening to @gretathunberg. Organizers estimate that on March 15, a remarkable 1.6 million people in 133 countries participated in a climate strike inspired by the 16-year-old Swedish activist’s solo action—mostly students who walked out of #school for a few minutes, an hour or a full day of #protest . Since then, the walkouts have continued, with students around the world united by the #FridaysForFuture and #YouthStrike4Climate hashtags.
Thunberg attributes her determination to her diagnosis of Asperger’s, a mild form of autism spectrum disorder. “It makes me see the world differently. I see through lies more easily,” she says. “I don’t like compromising.

Thunberg as a role model. “To be different is not a weakness. It’s a strength in many ways, because you stand out from the crowd.” Thunberg is in the 2019 class of Next Generation Leaders, featuring rising stars in politics, technology, culture, science, sports and entertainment.
