A young campaigner
Read the paragraph about Greta Thunberg and say if the sentences are true (T), false (F) or not given (NG).

Do you wish you could do something to help the environment? Well, some young people are already making the change they want to see in the world. Greta Thunberg is a 16-year-old climate change activist from Sweden and she's setting a good example while hoping to change people's attitudes to climate change and its consequences. She started her campaigning by simply sitting down outside the Swedish parliament building with a handmade sign saying, 'School strike for the climate'. Her protest soon captured press attention and gained popularity. Her photo appeared in newspapers around the world. Thousands of young people around the world have been joining the protests. Greta's message is clear and simple: she wishes politicians and companies would sit up and start acting on climate change. One step is to reduce the burning of fossil fuels. Young people would prefer to see a greener future for themselves and future generations. Greta has recently sailed nearly 5000 kms to New York to participate in a UN climate summit.
A: Greta is a climate scientist.
B: Her first protest involved marching outside the Swedish parliament.
C: Journalists became interested in her actions quite quickly.
D: Young people from many countries have protested.
E: Greta has been interviewed by politicians.
F: Young people want to see greener cities.
