Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old Swedish climate change activist, has been named as ‘Person Of The Year’ for the year 2019 by Time magazine.

Stating why she was named ‘Person Of The Year’, Time magazine said that she has emerged as the loudest voice on the topic of climate change on the planet. Greta demands action and says that several measures are being taken in the wrong direction. 

On being chosen ‘Person Of The Year’, Time magazine wrote that this 16-year-old girl demonstrated in front of her country’s Parliament and also led a movement of youth around the world. The magazine also wrote that in such a short time, she got a chance to meet the head of the United Nations.

However, the honour given to her by Time magazine is being discussed everywhere. On social media, questions are being raised over the honour given to her by Time magazine, with people saying that the honour should have been given to protestors in Hong Kong, who have been demonstrating against an extradition bill for the past six months.

In the past few days, these protests have become violent and aggressive.

Greta Thunberg has been conferred with this honour at a time when she is taking part in the COP-25 Summit on climate change in Madrid.

Apart from Greta, Time magazine has named the American women’s football team as ‘Athlete of the Year’, American public servants as ‘Guardians of the Year’, singer Lizzo as ‘Entertainer of the Year’ and Disney CEO Bob Iger as ‘Businessperson of the Year’.
