Congratulations to all the young people who are marching in cities around the world today to support action to solve the climate change crisis. It is inspiring that it is students—including Greta Thunberg—who are leading this movement to help save our planet. We provide this profile of Thunberg in our spring issue.

Greta Thunberg, a dog-loving 16-year-old Swedish environmental activist, is on a mission for the good of humankind and for our planet. As she described in her 2018 TEDXStockholm talk, she learned about climate change when she was only eight and saw that no one was really doing much about it. After going into a deep depression at age 11, she says, she was “diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, OCD and selective mutism.”
