Greta Thunberg Turn Down Nordic Council Environmental Award
BBC News informs that Greta Thunberg has rejected an environmental award and prize money. She said the offer was a “great honor” and thanked the Nordic Council explaining that “the climate movement does not need any more awards”.
Greta Thunberg was this year’s favorite to win the Nobel Peace Prize, but the award went to Ethiopia’s Abiy Ahmed.
She explained her decision of rejecting the prize worth £40,000 or €46,000 in an Instagram post stating the Nordic countries have a great reputation around the world when it comes to climate and environmental issues. She said that those countries have the possibility to do the most, but yet they basically do nothing.
She referenced a report from WWF and the Global Footprint Network, which says Sweden, along with most of the Nordic region, lives as if the world has the resources of four planets.
