A major publisher will be releasing a book of teen vegan climate activist Greta Thunberg's speeches next month.

Thunberg has made global headlines in recent months for encouraging students globally to attend demonstrations demanding political action on climate change while 'on strike' from school, and asking the pope to take action. In addition, she has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, as well as becoming the first recipient of the prestigious Prix Liberté.

No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference, published by Penguin Books, features 11 of Thunberg's key speeches, made between September 2018 - April 2019. The first was given three weeks after her first climate strike in August 2018, the most recent in the UK Parliament on 23 April.

'Urgent message'

"Greta has already galvanized millions of children and adults around the world, and she’s only just getting started," Chloe Currens, Commissioning Editor at Penguin Press, said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

"She calls for change at the highest level - and because her message is so urgent, and so essential, we are working to make it available to as many readers as we can, as quickly as we possibly can.

"This little book will document an extraordinary, unprecedented moment in our history, and invite you to join in the fight for climate justice: to wake up, spread the word, and make a difference."
