Speak Up! Speeches By Young People to Empower and Inspire

$35.00

A joyful celebration of the passion, power and enthusiasm of young people speaking up for causes close to their hearts.

Speak Up! is the sequel to So Here I Am, both celebrations of voices and communities too often marginalised and muted by society. Speak Up! includes 50 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.

Speak Up! is a joyful celebration of 45 speeches by children and teenagers who have stood up for causes they passionately believe in and challenged adults in power to take note. 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.
