Greta Thunberg Gets Her Own Bronze Statue In The UK


A statue of climate activist Greta Thunberg provokes anger in the UK 

LONDON — A statue of the climate activist Greta Thunberg that has been installed at a British university has provoked anger from students who labeled it a waste of money. Students at the University of Winchester, in the south of England, expressed their dismay at the cost of the statue, which was almost £24,000 ($33,000), with some calling it a “vanity project.” The university defended the bronze statue, which it believes is the first life-size model of the Swedish environmental campaigner, saying Thunberg is an “inspirational” figure and “a symbol of the University’s ongoing commitment to sustainability and social justice.” Source
