Back in August 2018, Thunberg took a stand. A small act of defiance that became a global movement for change. Now 18, Thunberg tells us she remains positive that we can and will save the planet.
“I want to be able to say I did everything I possibly could,” she says. “We can sit and do nothing and that may feel very hopeless, but as soon as we start taking action, there is hope.”
“Every individual counts. If we are to change everything, we need everyone. No step in the right direction is too small.”
