In the interview, Greta was asked what she thought was the “lowest depth of misery”.

She replied: “When you are too depressed to see that you, yourself, actually matter.” 

The climate activist admitted that she had experienced this feeling. 

She was later asked: “How did you find the strength to overcome your depression?”

She replied: “It happened gradually but it was thanks to the climate and ecological crisis.

“But I thought, ‘I need to do something and I can’t just sit here.’

“So I think that was both the thing that got me depressed in the first way but also the thing that got me out of that depression.”

The Netflix series focuses on several inspirational leaders reflecting on their motives in the pursuit for justice.
