I am Greta Doco: Panel Discussion



Join Friends of the Earth Melbourne for a panel discussion about the documentary I am Greta, the story of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg.

Starting with her one-person school strike for climate action outside the Swedish Parliament, the film follows Greta—a shy student with Asperger’s—in her rise to prominence and her galvanising global impact as she sparks school strikes around the world and demands action from leaders.

We'll discuss the reasons why people feel the need to heroise one person in the climate movement, the struggles of facing climate change as a young person, the intersections of disability and climate, and co-operatives as one way support communities without destroying the planet.

Watch I Am Greta, streaming on DocPlay* from 14th November before the panel discussion on the 9th of December. www.docplay.com/home
