Thunberg, 19, will also share her own stories of learning about, demonstrating and exposing greenwashing (the practice of giving the wrong impression or providing misleading information about how a company’s products are more environmentally friendly) around the world.
She said: “This is the greatest story in the world and it needs to be spoken as far and wide as our voices can carry it and beyond.
“That’s why I decided to use my platform to create this book, based on the best science currently available – a book that addresses the climate, environmental and sustainability crisis holistically.
“Because the climate crisis is of course just a symptom of a much larger sustainability crisis. I hope that this book could be a kind of focal point for understanding these different, closely related crises.”
Chloe Currens, Editor at Penguin Press in London, added: “In The Climate Book, Greta has proven to be one of our finest and most exciting new writers.
“She shares her own experiences and expands on what she has learned in a series of insightful, insightful and passionate chapters that tie together the different parts of the book.

“Her passages about government inaction make today’s greenwashing breathtakingly clear, and her call for climate justice is unmistakable.
“This is a unique book, full of moral intent, that aims to change the climate debate forever.”
The climate book will be published on October 27th.
