Many teenagers and children nowadays are getting woke, as they call it, and participating in social, environmental, and political issues. Perhaps, this may be due to the effects of social media and the internet where they are able to gain access to information quicker and with more depth. It also enables them to become more involved.
One example of such is teen environmental activist Greta Thunberg who delivered her speech at the United Nations Climate Action Summit. Watch the full video of her speech here.
