Swedish activist pulls out of Edinburgh Book Festival over greenwashing.

Greta Thunberg has pulled out of a much anticipated event at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.She cited a sponsor's heavy investments in fossil fuel and accusing them of greenwashing. The 20-year-old Swedish activist argued that she as a climate activist,cannot attend an event which receives sponsorship from Baillie Gifford who invest heavily in the fossil fuel industry. "Greenwashing efforts by the fossil fuel industry including sponsorship of cultural events allow them to keep the social license to continue operating.I cannot and do not want to be associated with events that accept this kind of sponsorship," she went on to say.

          We're in a transition of change and change takes time but if an organisation is trying to deceive its consumers and jump into a bandwagon then they deserve to be called out..Honesty and transparency is the key. Good job greta 👍
