The burden of celebrity

Greta Thunberg — here in a beautiful photo by Lionel Bonaventure (AFP/Getty Images) — has successfully achieved phase one of her mission. The second, decisive phase requires changes, from all of us and from her. These changes are discussed in this post.

I have been a supporter of Greta Thunberg from the very start of her adventure. I thought — and time so validated — that the action of a young, innocent girl had the potential to decisively mobilise the civil society beyond the fringe of environmental activists. The result of this has been a spectacular success: Greta indeed placed climate emergency at the heart of daily conversations, whether in the media or our everyday life.
