Welcome to another Women's Wednesday! We'll give focus to an incredible woman in the world who is using her platform for good, and promoting sustainability among other ways to keep our planet happy, healthy, and whole. Today's spotlight goes to 17-year-old environmental activist, Greta Thunberg!
Hailing from Sweden, Greta quickly realized our planet was in danger due to climate change, and thought our governments weren't doing enough to prevent it from causing future global catastrophe. Starting with a simple strike at her high school, similar protests emerged around her community, and soon the world. She then sailed to the 2019 UN Climate Action Summit to speak her piece to several of the world's leaders, giving a voice to the younger generation and urging others to start taking environmental threats seriously.
Greta is a prime example of how important it is for all of us to speak up, no matter who or where we are. It may not feel like it, but all it takes is a spark and one person to start a conversation.
A documentary about Greta's journey is available on Hulu.
