Nobel peace prize nominee Greta Thunberg teaches us that we have the power to reverse climate change and that we must act now.

Thunberg has been busy to say the least, from solo protests to organizing group strikes of students globally.
This week strikes are expected in 1,659 towns and cities in 105 countries.
The school strikes were inspired by the Fridays For The Future movement started by Thunberg under the hashtag #FridaysForFuture.
So far, there have been regular walkouts around the world, including in countries likes Germany, Belgium, the UK, France, Australia and Japan.
“It is truly inspiring to see young people, led by brilliant young women, making their voices heard and demanding urgent climate action. They are absolutely correct that our actions today will determine their futures,” said Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris and chair of the C40 group of cities.
“My message to young citizens is clear: it is our responsibility as adults and political leaders to learn from you and deliver the future you want.” – Anne Hidalgo
