'She's happy': Greta Thunberg's father says climate activism helped her beat depression
Greta Thunberg's father has talked about how activism helped his daughter out of depression. Speaking to the BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Svante Thunberg said he had thought it was 'a bad idea' for his daughter to take to the 'front line' of the battle against climate change but added that her activism helped her battle depression. 'You think she's not ordinary now because she's special, and she's very famous, and all these things. But to me she's now an ordinary child,' he said. As part of Greta’s guest editorship of the programme, she has also spoken to Sir David Attenborough for the first time.
