As 15 year-old Swedish environmental warrior Greta Thunberg continues her global strike for initiative to raise awareness about the urgency of combating climate change, her message is being amplified in the clubs by Fatboy Slim. The superstar DJ recently reposted a remix Thunberg’s powerful speech at the United Nations Climate Action Summit last set to his 1998 track “Right Here, Right Now.”
As reported by NME, Fatboy Slim dropped the remix into a recent set, thrilling the audience with his homage to the fiercely determined young woman who Time magazine tipped as a “clear favorite” to win the Nobel Prize this year. Thunberg has gained support from a number of musical celebrities, including Joe Jonas, Camila Cabello and Ellie Goulding, as well as Billie Eilish, Janelle Monáe, Leonardo DiCaprio and The 1975‘s Matty Healy. The latter referred to Thunberg as “the most punk person” he’s ever met and his band got together with the activist recently on a spoken word essay about the effects of climate change for the opening track on their upcoming Notes On a Conditional Form album.
