Greta Thunberg nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Two lawmakers in Sweden have nominated Greta Thunberg for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize.

Members of Sweden’s Left Party, Jens Holm and Hakan Svenneling, said Monday how Thunberg “has worked hard to make politicians open their eyes to the climate crisis” as well as “action for reducing our emissions and complying with the Paris Agreement is therefore also an act of making peace.”

Thunberg, 17, has motivated students around the world to skip school and protest to demand faster action on climate change, founding the Fridays for Future movement which has inspired similar actions by youth around the globe.
