It’s safe to say that the past couple of years have been life-changing for Greta Thunberg

The 18-year-old activist has made a name for herself in recent times thanks to her campaigning and demands for instant action on climate change.

The Sweden-born activist, who has her own documentary film I Am Greta, is currently at the Cop26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland, and she’s made quite an impact.

From singing “you can shove your climate crisis up your a*se” to saying politicians are “pretending to take our future seriously,” she certainly isn’t scared of making a scene.

Now, people around the world are intrigued to know what her net worth is. Let’s find out…

The 18-year-old Swedish girl is a climate change activist who has become a shining light in the fight against global warming and received plenty of media attention for her hard-hitting contributions to the debate.

Greta rose to prominence in 2018 after she was seen protesting and campaigning for instant action on climate change in Sweden.

Since then, she’s become internationally recognised for her work and has gone on to speak at the United Nations in New York and many other important summits.

What is Greta’s net worth?

Greta Thunberg’s net worth is unconfirmed but is estimated to be around $1 million.

Unlike Hollywood actors whose regular work in blockbuster movies allows for accurate estimates into their net worth, the 18-year-old poses a different story.

Her life as a climate change activist isn’t about earning money, and after being awarded €1 million when she won the inaugural Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity, she gave the money to charity.

Greta’s parents, Svante Thunberg and Malena Ernman are an actor and opera singer, meaning that Greta has probably been well off in her upbringing.

Does she get paid for her activism work?

It is unconfirmed whether or not Greta Thunberg is paid for her activism work.

However, there is the possibility that Greta’s notable presence on social media, which includes five million Twitter followers and 13.3 million Instagram followers, allows for some kind of ad revenue money.

After being awarded €1 million for her humanitarian work by winning the inaugural Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity in July 2020, she said:

“We’re in a climate emergency, and my foundation will as quickly as possible donate all the prize money of one million euros to support organisations and projects that are fighting for a sustainable world.”

Highest-paid hoax

Early in 2019, a magazine cover went viral on social media claiming that Greta Thunberg is one of the highest-paid activists on Earth but according to Snopes and the look of the magazine cover itself, it’s quite clearly not genuine.

On top of that, the company behind the fake cover, MediaMass, has been churning out identical covers for a number of years featuring some of the biggest names in popular culture as it appears to be a parody news site.

2019 ended with Greta on a very different magazine cover though as she was named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2019.
