Young environment and climate change activist ‘Greta Thunberg’ has filed for a patent of her name. The 17 years old Swedish girl who has become an international name since her “How Dare You” speech in the United Nations (UN) informed on Thursday.
Greta has registered both her own name and her “Fridays For Future” global protest movement as trademarks. She has taken the step to prevent her name and movement from being hijacked for fraudulent purposes.
“My name and the #FridaysForFuture movement are constantly being used for commercial purposes without any consent whatsoever. I assure you, I and the other school strikers have absolutely no interests in trademarks. But unfortunately, it needs to be done’, wrote Greta on her Instagram account.
Greta skipped school on Fridays to spend the day outside Sweden’s parliament with a sign labeled “School strike for climate” as a part of her “Fridays For Future” movement. The little activist has been quite vocal about the cause on international forums.
Recently Greta attended the ‘climate change talks’ at the World Economic Forum’s meeting in Davos, Switzerland.
