Happy Earth Day 2021!
This year’s theme of “Restore the Earth,” is so relevant at a time when the world is focused on curing and healing. One strong voice that reminds us that restoration must take conviction and passion is Greta Thurnberg. This young activist is a role model to the younger generations – some of whom train with Yes She Can – to speak on their own behalf to ensure a healthy world for their future.
Did you know that Greta is also neurodiverse and believes her intense focus on climate change is partly due to the unique way in which her brain works? People on the autism spectrum often experience a hyperfocus or vigilance towards a preferred topic. Many of our trainees have passions that include animal welfare, social justice, and women’s rights and this drives their desire to find work in these fields.
