There's no denial, student climate activism is becoming a big deal worldwide. It's got so big that Greta Thunberg, Swedish teen climate activist, 16, was nominated for Nobel Peace Prize! The Typical Student team learned the details.
Student Climale Activism Getting Recognized By Politicians
The Globe and Mail reports Greta Thunberg has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by three Norwegian lawmakers. No wonder as Swedish teen activist "has become a prominent voice in campaigns against climate change." Politician Freddy Andre Oevstegaard commented as follows: "The massive movement Greta has set in motion is a very important peace contribution."
Greta Thunberg's Impact
Despite Greta is only 16, she's been able to encourage hundreds of students to join protests and "demand faster action on climate change." At that, the movement has outgrown Sweden spreading to other European countries. Acording to the rules of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, any national lawmaker is eligible to nominate somebody for the Nobel Peace Prize. The nominations are not discussed publicly, and have to be submitted by Feb 1, 2019.
