Why are this flower called Greta ?
Well, we have decided to name our flowers after some Super Power Women and Greta Thunberg has certainly become the biggest voice on our planet's biggest issue, climate change.
Greta Thunberg is a Swedish climate youth activist who started a movement to fight climate change, in 2018. She had a poster with a handwritten text saying "School strike for climate". Thunberg began skipping school on Fridays and protesting outside the Swedish Parliament. Thanks to social media, she got viral very fast and influenced millions of young people all over the world to organize and protest.
Thunberg and other concerned youths throughout Europe have continued to pressure leaders and lawmakers to act on climate change. She meets with global leaders and speaks at assemblies to demand climate solutions and a recommitment to the Paris Agreement. After being diagnosed with Asperger's, the activist has publicly shared her views on her disorder, referring to it as her "super power."
