Climate activist Greta Thunberg has revealed that people have been trying to impersonate her.

The 16-year-old is currently on the west coast of Canada, after sailing across the Atlantic to attend the United Nations Climate Action Summit in New York last month.

She took to Instagram to share images of herself in British Columbia, accompanied by a caption revealing the impersonation attempts (though she did not go into detail).


“It has come to my attention that a few people have been trying to impersonate me or falsely claim that they ‘represent’ me in order to communicate with political leaders, famous actors, singers, and musicians,” she said.

“I apologize to anyone who has been contacted – and maybe even misled – by this kind of behavior.

“I hope that those who want to sincerely reach out to me will do so using the recognized channels. The good news in all of this is that this just means we’re having impact. Activism works. And see you in the streets.”
