WINCHESTER University has unveiled a statue of environmental activist Greta Thunberg.
The university has spent £23,760 on the life- sized sculpture, named Make A Difference. It was commissioned (ordered) back in 2019 and was intended to be “an inspiration for all students”.
However, the artwork has caused arguments with many saying that the money could have been spent in better ways.
The Student Union at Winchester says that the statue’s unveiling comes at a time when there have been job losses and library cuts at the university, and argues that the money could have been used for things such as mental health services instead.
