Greta Thunberg's Message to Davos

After her speech at the UN Climate Change COP24 Conference
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFkQSGyeCWg, Greta is back in the picture again with a message to the Davos World Economic Forum.

A have seen a lot of comments about this - she is part of a stupid marketing campaign, she should go back to school and focus on stuff she can influence, she is too young, etc. - I think these guys are just missing the point.

Greta decided to spend one school day per week to focus on the Climate topic, I think she will learn much more during this day than in school. If everybody would be motivated in a similar way - just spending an hour per week, there would be much more visibility and impact for the Climate Change topic that will influence the current, the next and the 2nd next generation.

Simon Sinek covers it well in his Notes to Inspire from today "We crave explanations for most everything, but innovation and progress happen when we allow ourselves to embrace uncertainty."

Just in case you remember the video about the Convercycle Bike from 04-Jan-19, I found another good one that also perfectly fits to the Climate Change topic, have a look:
