Greta Thunberg a Swedish activist nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

 

Copenhagen: Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old Swedish activist who is a prominent voice in the fight against climate change, has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize this year. Norwegian deputy Andre Ovstegard told the “VG” newspaper on Wednesday that he and two other parliamentarians of the Socialist Left Party have nominated Thunberg because “climate threats are perhaps one of the most important contributions to war and conflict”, and “the mass movement that she has promoted is a very important contribution to peace”, reports Efe news.
