Greta Thunberg, 17-year-old environmental activist, will be the subject of an upcoming BBC docu-drama depicting her "international crusade" against climate change.

Thunberg has made a name for herself as a climate crusader prodigy, speaking in front of United Nations conferences and appearing on the cover of TIME magazine. She famously traveled to the 2019 UN Climate Action Summit by sailing across the Atlantic ocean in a yacht to avoid generating greenhouse gasses.

The BBC said that the film will follow Thunberg's activist efforts around the globe while also portraying "her own journey into adulthood as she continues to be confronted by the real world consequences of inaction."
