Greta Thunberg was fifteen years old when she started her School Strike for Climate in 2018. For three weeks she spent her school days outside of the Swedish Parliament in Stockholm to call for stronger action on climate change. Her sudden rise to fame made her both a leader and a target for critics. Since then, her influence on the world stage has been described as the “Greta Effect”.

In YOUR SILENCE IS ALMOST THE WORST OF ALL  the environmental journalist and climate activist Anders Hellberg, who took the now iconic yellow raincoat photograph of Greta, and who was there every day of the strike, gives us a unique perspective of the three weeks that changed the world, and maybe saved the planet. Includes many never-before seen photos from the historic school strike.
