Today I will be sharing my review of No One Is Too Small To Make A Difference by Greta Thunberg.
A new expanded and illustrated edition of the history-making speeches of Greta Thunberg, the young activist who has become the voice of a generation
‘We are the change and change is coming’
In August 2018 a fifteen-year-old Swedish girl, Greta Thunberg, decided not to go to school one day. A year later, she was joined in her strike by over seven million people around the world.
This is the record of a game-changing year in the fight against the climate crisis. Collecting the speeches that sparked a global movement, and iconic images of those who made it happen, No One Is Too Small to Make A Difference is a rallying cry for why we must all wake up and fight to protect the living planet, no matter how powerless we feel. Our future depends upon it.
With new speeches from Vienna, Paris, New York and Montreal
No One Is Too Small To Make A Difference was my first read of 2020, and I finished it in less than 24 hours. I just couldn’t put it down. I’ve never sat down to read a book of speeches before, but I am so glad that I did. This book is such an inspirational read, and I think everyone should give it a read. It does get a little repetitive at times, but I still thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this book. It really opened my eyes as to just how serious of a threat climate change is, and how desperately we need to deal with it.
Greta has so much passion and determination, and what she is doing for the planet is incredible, especially considering how young she is! I truly believe that the world could learn a lot from her.
I give No One Is Too Small To Make A Difference a 4 star rating. It would have been 5, but I have dropped a star due to the repetitiveness.
I feel that the world really needs to start taking climate change a lot more seriously, and start taking proper action, because we are running out of time to rectify this situation. I try my hardest to do what I can to help our planet, and I like to think that my efforts aren’t being completely wasted, but realistically, not enough people are trying to make a change. Yes, it is difficult, but if we all made that conscious effort, and took a little more time to think before we act, we could really make a difference!
I have recently been trying to cut out single use plastics from my life, which is a lot harder than I expected, but it is possible. I have been buying a lot from a site called Peace With The Wild, who’s entire website is eco-friendly, plastic free, and vegan friendly products. They are amazing, and especially good for those who are first starting to make those changes in their life.
