Speak Up - Speeches by Young People to Empower and Inspire


Speak Up - Speeches by Young People to Empower and Inspire is backordered and will ship as soon as it is back in stock.

Speak Up! is the sequel to So Here I Am, both celebrations of voices and communities too often marginalized and muted by society. Speak Up! includes 45 inspirational speeches from children and young adults that have changed our world, how we see and experience it, and the conversation. Speakers include Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai, Nobel Prize nominee Greta Thunberg and award-winning inventor and cancer researcher Jack Andraka.

This collection is testament to the hopefulness and spirit of the next generation, and the positive belief that we can, and should, act to protect the things we love.

From ground-breaking scientific inventions to pleas for the environment, anti-war speeches to incredible testimony of lived experiences, the speeches collected here demonstrate the profound wisdom of youth and why it is important to speak up and out on what concerns us.

‘A society that cuts itself off from its youth severs its own lifeline; it is condemned to bleed to death.’
—Kofi Annan
