Greta Thunberg - book author

Greta Thunberg is a Swedish schoolgirl who, at age 15, began protesting outside the Swedish parliament about the need for immediate action to combat climate change and has since become an outspoken climate activist.

She is known for having initiated the school strike for climate movement that formed in November 2018 and surged globally after the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP24) in December the same year. Her personal activism began in August 2018, when her recurring and solitary Skolstrejk för klimatet ("School strike for the climate") protesting outside the Swedish parliament in Stockholm began attracting media coverage, even though Sweden has already enacted "the most ambitious climate law in the world" – to be carbon neutral by 2045.

On 15 March 2019, an estimated 1.4 million students in 112 countries around the world joined her call in striking and protesting. A similar event involving students from 125 countries took place on 24 May 2019.

Thunberg has received various prizes and awards for her activism. In March 2019, three members of the Norwegian parliament nominated Thunberg for the Nobel Peace Prize. In May 2019, at the age of 16, she featured on the cover of Time magazine. Some media have described her impact on the world stage as the Greta Thunberg effect.

'Everything needs to change. And it has to start today'

In August 2018 a fifteen-year-old Swedish girl, Greta Thunberg, decided not to go to school one day. Her actions ended up sparking a global movement for action against the climate crisis, inspiring millions of pupils to go on strike for our planet, forcing governments to listen, and earning her a Nobel Peace Prize nomination.

This book brings you Greta in her own words, for the first time. Collecting her speeches that have made history across Europe, from the UN to mass street protests, No One Is Too Small to Make A Difference 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.

Den här historien handlar om mig och min familj och den kris som drabbade oss. Men det är framförallt en berättelse om krisen som omger oss alla. Kanske handlar den om utbrända människor på en utbränd planet där väder, vind och vardag ökar i styrka för varje dag. Att hålla ihop som människor och att hitta hållbarhet, det är hjärtat i denna bok. /Malena Ernman

Die gesammelten Reden der 16-jährigen Klimaschutz-Aktivistin Greta Thunberg dokumentieren ihren Aufruf zum weltweiten Schulstreik für das Klima. Unter #FridaysForFuture demonstrieren Tausende Schüler jeden Freitag mit ihr gemeinsam gegen CO2-Emissionen, die Verbrennung fossiler Energieträger und den menschengemachten Klimawandel. In ihren mittlerweile weltweit bekannten Reden, vor dem schwedischen Parlament, bei der Weltklimakonferenz in Kattowitz oder beim Weltwirtschaftsforum in Davos, fordert Greta Thunberg eine radikale Kehrtwende in der Klimapolitik und die Einhaltung des Pariser Klimaabkommens.
Mit Zahlen, Fakten und stichhaltigen Argumenten macht Greta Thunberg eindrücklich und schonungslos deutlich: Die Klimakrise ist jetzt. Um die Katastrophe abzuwenden, müssen wir endlich handeln. Wir müssen unseren Alltag nachhaltig verändern und selbst Verantwortung übernehmen für die Energiewende. #Istayontheground ist nur der Anfang.
Greta Thunbergs Reden sind ein Weckruf, den wir nicht länger ignorieren können.

Skogar brinner. Städer översvämmas. Djur och växter utrotas. Vad håller ni på med?

Kanske är det lika bra att bara ge upp direkt och invänta det oundvikliga slutet i lugn och ro, eller finns det hopp om framtiden? Kan klimatpsykologer och zombieöverlevnadsexperter ge oss verktyg för att förbättra tillvaron? Och kan litteraturen och konsten vara de krafter som ger oss mod att stå upp för det som är viktigt på riktigt?

Några av vår tids främsta författare, musiker, poeter, serietecknare och aktivister har tagit sig an de frågor som väcks inom oss när vi tänker på klimatet. Tillsammans har de skapat en antologi fylld med dystopiska berättelser, iskall vrede och förlamande frustration. Men även upplyftande fakta, spirande kärlek och en hel del skratt.
