On March 15th: GET INSPIRED by a 15 year old schoolgirl Greta Thunberg from Sweden (11 minutes TED talks)



Greta Thunberg realized at a young age the lapse in what several climate experts were saying and in the actions that were being taken in society. The difference was so drastic in her opinion that she decided to take matters into her own hands. Greta is a 15-year-old Stockholm native who lives at home with her parents and sister Beata. She’s a 9th grader in Stockholm who enjoys spending her spare time riding Icelandic horses, spending time with her families two dogs, Moses and Roxy. She love animals and has a passion for books and science. At a young age, she became interested in the environment and convinced her family to adopt a sustainable lifestyle. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

    Wow, wow, and wow!! I cant even imagine having had the courage to speak to an audience of people at 15 years old, much less, be as informed about things as she is!! An inspiration to see, and I hope her message continues to move minds and hearts! ❤

    1. So true Anita! and she suffers from Asperger’s an introverted child with selective mutism, who coped with depression since she was 8 years old when she started learning about the environment. Her personal story is amazing, Here is a link to some of the stories about her: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/mar/11/greta-thunberg-schoolgirl-climate-change-warrior-some-people-can-let-things-go-i-cant

      Her parents have also been very supportive, I watched an interview in which she is with her dad, and her parents really changed their whole life style around to support her. I deeply admire her! ❤
