‘We’ll be reporting about the scale of the ongoing climate crisis and I’ll be talking to David Attenborough for the first time’ The Swedish teenage environment activist has announced
This would be the first time that Thunberg, 16, would be meeting the Planet Earth presenter.
As Euro Weekly News understands, Thunberg is set to guest edit BBC Radio 4’s Today program today Monday where she will be meeting Attenborough and interviewing him for a special climate change edition of the show.
“She’s truly remarkable and she’s stirred the world,” Sir David said of Thunberg in November, adding that he hoped they would meet as he prepares to hand over the “baton of environmentalism” to Greta Thunberg in the first encounter between the legendary naturalist and the teenage activist.
Greta, who began holding Friday protesters outside her country’s parliament in August 2018, has inspired millions of young people to call for faster action against climate change.
She was named Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2019.
The Today programme has announced several guest editors between 26 and 31 December, including artist Grayson Perry, former Telegraph editor Charles Moore, rapper George the Poet and Supreme Court president Baroness Hale.
