About the Film: I Am Greta
Remember back before COVID - the 2019 protests filled the streets with millions of young people calling for climate action? That included our Interfaith Power and Light (IPL) youth leaders and activists! They were inspired by one shy teenager whose voice struck a chord that reverberated around the world. Some call her a prophet of our time, calling us to repentance and action.

The story of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg is told through compelling, never-before-seen footage in this intimate documentary from Swedish director Nathan Grossman. Starting with her one person school strike for climate action outside the Swedish Parliament, Grossman follows Greta – a shy student with Asperger’s – in her rise to prominence and her galvanizing global impact as she sparks school strikes around the world. The film culminates with her extraordinary wind-powered voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to speak at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York City.

Join IPL for an exciting free opportunity to view the just-released film about Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, I am Greta, and hop on a post film webinar to hear IPL Youth Leaders from around the nation tell us their amazing stories of continued activism.
