Yo Co-Eco Echo a Play for Greta Thunberg Thursday August 15 2019 at 7:00 PM
Thursday August 15 2019
In December 2018, at the UN climate summit, 15 year-old Greta Thunberg stood up in front of an auditorium full of world leaders and told them, they were "behaving like irresponsible children". In January 2019 she stood in front of the global business elite in Davos, Switzerland and decried: “Some people, some companies, some decision-makers in particular, have known exactly what priceless values they have been sacrificing to continue making unimaginable amounts of money. And I think many of you here today belong to that group of people.”
In the past year, through her inspiring acts of defiant truth telling, Greta has become the face of a bold new environmental movement, lead by young people, many of whom are not even franchised to vote.
From Climate School Walk Outs, to her powerful Ted Talk, to her international call for action, Greta is changing the world.
Together with director and co-creator Pippa Johnstone, The Blyth Festival Young Company are generating an Eco Echo.
"If I live to be 100 I will be alive in the year 2103. When you think about “the future” today, you don’t think beyond the year 2050. By then I will, in the best case, not even have lived half of my life. What happens next?
