Greta Thunberg – Superhero

Since participating in the World Climate Change Rally, Jewel knew that she wanted to lead Damsels in a discussion of Greta Thunberg. Below are some materials that Jewel located as inspiration for the gathering.

After watching and reading the material that Jewel selected, the Damsels gathered for a discussion (and snacks).

They did a couple of fun icebreakers, watched a video and then jumped into the discussion. Some of the main things they learned about Greta:

  • She was born on January 3, 2003
  • Greta skips school every Friday to stand in front of the Parliament building
  • She says her diagnosis is her superpower in a way
  • People leave it up to her generation to do something about the climate

The Damsels unanimously decided to honor Greta by returning to Lewis Park and planting trees as part of Green Seattle Day.
