'Everything needs to change. And it has to start today.'
This is the rallying cry of Greta Thunberg, the 16 year old Swedish activist who has become the voice of a generation, urging us all to wake up and fight to protect the living planet, no matter how powerless we might feel. This small book contains her ground-breaking speeches which have made history across Europe, from the UN to mass street protests.
Calling out disinterested statesmen and marshalling compelling scientific evidence to reinforce her arguments, Greta’s heartfelt speeches frame one of the most significant themes of the twenty-first century so far.
In August 2018 Greta Thunberg decided not to go to school one day. Her actions ended up sparking a global movement for action against the climate crisis, inspiring millions of pupils to go on strike for our planet, forcing governments to listen, and earning her a Nobel Peace Prize nomination.
No One is Too Small to Make a Difference documents a seismic political and cultural moment. Collecting Greta’s speeches together in one volume, this timely book lays bare the eloquence and fury that drive a global environmental movement. This volume is a chance to own a small piece of history: the work of a stirring, visionary leader in the making, whose tireless efforts are a reminder that we all matter, that our voices have power and that it is up to us all to create the change our world so desperately needs.
