Inspired by the words of Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, founder of the School Strikes campaign.
In a speech to the World Economic Forum in April 2019 she said:
“Adults keep saying we owe it to the young people, to give them hope, but I don’t want your hope. I don’t want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. I want you to act. I want you to act as you would in a crisis. I want you to act as if the house is on fire, because it is.”
