Questions and answers about We Don’t Have Time’s
relationship with Greta Thunberg
We Don’t Have Time has recently received many questions about our relationship with Greta
Thunberg and about the structure of our organization. An article in Svenska Dagbladet dated 9
February 2019 has accused us of exploiting Greta Thunberg in connection with public share new issue
in the limited company.
What is the nature of We Don’t Have Time’s relationship with Greta Thunberg?
Greta Thunberg is a climate activist who has succeeded in engaging people all around the world in a
way that few have achieved to date. We’ve been asked whether we’re the PR machine behind her
success, but unfortunately, we can’t make that claim. Greta’s success is all due to her own efforts.
However, our founder Ingmar Rentzhog was one of the first to report about her demonstration
outside the Swedish parliament. We’ve also contributed to highlighting her protest in our social
media channels and put her in contact with individual journalists and others in our network
committed to fighting climate change. Simply put, we’ve tried to support her campaign, just like we
do for other great climate initiatives.
In October 2018, Greta Thunberg was asked to become youth advisor to the We Don’t Have Time
foundation. The Foundation Board of Directors and advisors include other prominent people from
the climate movement such as Jamie Margolin, Stuart Scott, Cathy Orlando and Per Espen Stoknes.
Thunberg participated as youth advisor between November 2018 and January 2019. She terminated
her engagement to focus wholeheartedly on her school strike for the climate.
