Vegan climate activist Greta Thunberg is on the cover of WIRED magazine.

Thunberg has made global headlines in recent months for encouraging students globally to attend demonstrations demanding political action on climate change while ‘on strike’ from school, and asking the pope to take action. In addition, she has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, as well as becoming the first recipient of the prestigious Prix Liberté.

She has featured on a number of prominent magazine covers recently including TIME and i-D.

‘Not a celebrity’

Despite the major media coverage, Thunberg told WIRED that she doesn’t consider herself a celebrity, and that the spotlight on her will soon wane. “I am not going to be this interesting for long. This attention is soon going to fade out, but I just hope that the attention sticks to the movement,” she said.

She added that she will continue her activism even if ‘even if there is no hope’.

“Not having hope is not an excuse for not doing something. Everyone says different things,” she said. “Some say we are already screwed and some say we still have time. I just hope that this movement will continue and we do something about the climate – because that is the only thing that matters.”

The WIRED UK July/August Issue will be available on June 6.
