Ice-Statue Of Greta Thunberg Placed In Trafalgar Square To Highlight Climate Crisis

1 Minutes Read

A giant ice-statue of Greta Thunberg was erected in Trafalgar Square this morning in a bid to bring attention to the climate crisis.

The statue, which was created by London creatives, Alissa Khan-Whelan, Chris Godfrey and CJ Brown, is accompanied by a petition addressed to London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

The petition calls for a permanent statue of Thunberg to be assembled in London, as a commitment to making change.

‘Remarkable efforts’

“It is to recognize her remarkable efforts in creating a global movement and inspiring a generation to fearlessly take on world leaders in the fight to halt climate change,” the Greta Iceberg team told Plant Based News.

“After being targeted online by older and more powerful men for her personality, tone of voice and even her Aspergers, the statue exists to stand with Greta, focusing on her message rather than the emotion behind it.

“Greta Thunberg is a representation of the youth, and she has successfully invigorated the climate debate that was failing to get the attention it deserved. The petition encourages Londoner’s to stand with Greta and lead by example in recognizing her courage.”
