Watch: Greta Thunberg gives powerful speech at UN Climate Action Summit

Are you sitting at your desk seething at the fact that your boss won’t allow you to watch the rugby today? You are not alone, and Greta Thunberg has a message for your boss!


South Africa – People are always triggered by the words of Greta Thunberg but not today! South Africans are finally getting behind her message… well, kind of!

Someone took her speech at the World Leaders at the 2019 UN Climate Action Summit in New York and changed its context so South Africans could support it. While her original message is really important (you can see it here), it is excellent, as always, to see some South African humour.

Hands up, how many of you are able to watch the Springboks vs Italy today? If not, this message will really hit home. Perhaps your boss needs to be sent the message.

If you are lucky enough to be able to watch the rugby today, tag your friends that aren’t.
