The Beano has gifted climate activist Greta Thunberg with a bespoke illustration to express thanks for all she has done for a cause that is so important to the Beano community.
The illustration, given to Greta in Bristol yesterday, where she was attending a school strike with College Green, was drawn by legendary Beano artist Nigel Parkinson, shows Greta protesting at Beano High School – surrounded by iconic comic characters including Dennis and Gnasher, Minnie the Minx and The Bash Street Kids.
Alongside the illustration Miss Thunberg was awarded the Beano Power Award after her climate protests were voted by Beano readers as the ‘Moment of the Year’ in 2019.
One in five children aged between five and nine have already attended their first march or protest about something they care about, and half of their parents are encouraging them to speak out as activists, according to a survey by Beano Studios.
Greta Thunberg is a climate and environmentalist activist whose campaigning has gained international recognition.
