Last Updated: 11 October 2021

No One is Too Small to Make a Difference by Greta Thunberg book cover

The groundbreaking speeches of Greta Thunberg, the young climate activist who has become the voice of a generation, including her historic address to the United Nations.

In August 2018 a fifteen-year-old Swedish girl, Greta Thunberg, decided not to go to school one day in order to protest the climate crisis. Her actions sparked a global movement, inspiring millions of students 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 brings you Greta in her own words, for the first time. Collecting her speeches that have made history across the globe, from the United Nations to Capitol Hill and mass street protests, her book 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.

Greta Thunberg is a schoolgirl from Sweden. She is a young climate change activist and an incredibly dedicated, passionate young lady. Greta Thunberg is an inspiration.

This compact, pocket-sized volume collects some of her greatest speeches to date, immortalising the words that have struck a chord with millions of people all over the world. The teenager has become an unlikely climate superhero, using her voice to speak out and protest for the future of both the human race and the earth. Yes, at times it is dramatic, but as Greta so eloquently puts it, our very future depends on the actions we take right now.

The speeches in this collection are simple, passionate, and straight to the point. There is no beating around the push in Greta's words, no empty promises or weak-willed dialogue. No, these are the words of a girl who isn't afraid to stand up and speak out, to use her voice - however small - to raise awareness and open the eyes of the world.

Greta sees the world in black and white, and this issue, which has divided politics, people, and entire countries over the years, is no different. We should all follow her example to wake up and see the facts that have been staring us in the face for years.

The time to act is now - long may this inspirational schoolgirl be the catalyst driving the significant change that we all need.
