Climate activist Greta Thunberg features on new postage stamp

18-year-old Climate Activist, Greta Thunberg, is set to appear on a new series of stamps in Sweden.

The new stamps featuring Thunberg are in celebration of her consistent efforts to "preserve Sweden's unique nature for future generations"

The collection, which will be released later on this year, was illustrated by Henning Trollbck, with 11 designs included in the collection.

The new stamps show different environments from Swedish nature such as magnificent mountains, forests, the rich agricultural landscape, marshes, as well as animals, plants, and cultural values.

One of the illustrations released featuring Greta shows her standing on the edge of a mountain wearing her yellow raincoat as birds fly around her.

A spokesperson for Post Nord said; "We are very happy to be able to tell you about the stamps Valuable nature and that Greta, with several important nature illustrations, becomes a stamp symbol for the valuable nature we have and the important work we all have to do every day to preserve nature for generations to come.

"The choice of environmental focus obviously feels apt for the time we live in.

"We at PostNord have a great responsibility to reduce our own climate impact and drive the industry in the right direction."

The stamp seriesValuable Nature and Gothenburg 400 years will be available from the PostNord website from January 14, 2021, and can also be easily ordered at
