Three Norwegian lawmakers have nominated Greta Thunberg for her fight against climate change. The teenager has encouraged people to take part in worldwide protests.

Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of her work leading a youth campaign to halt climate change.

Three Norwegian lawmakers put forth the 16-year-old’s name.

“We have nominated Greta because the climate threat may be one of the most important causes of war and conflict,” parliamentary representative Freddy Andre Oevstegaard told Norwegian media outlet VG.

“The massive movement Greta has set in motion is a very important peace contribution,” he added.

According Christian Christensen who tweet on his twitter account about to Nobel Peace Prize:

To those wondering what the climate has to do w/peace, consider how many future military conflicts & humanitarian crises will result from serious climate change (land, water, food, migration/refugees). So, reducing that change would reduce that violence.

About Greta Thunberg being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize: If you’re going to send me tweets saying “But Obama won the Nobel prize!!” thinking that’s scoring points against me, don’t bother. I’ve made my thoughts about that very public…on Twitter and in publications.

I’ve said on a number of occasions that people like Obama and Kissinger winning pretty much made the Nobel Peace Prize a pointless irony. But, if this Nobel nomination adds awareness to environmentalism and Greta’s cause, so much the better.

On Friday, thousands of students are expected to demonstrate in more than 100 countries in what activists say could be a milestone moment in a grassroots campaign to push world leaders into doing more.

“We are only seeing the beginning,” Thunberg, now 16, tweeted recently.

“I think that change is on the horizon and the people will stand up for their future.”

According to the Nobel Institute, 304 individuals and organisations have been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize this year.

The list of nominees is kept secret for at least 50 years, in line with the Nobel Foundation’s statutes.

Thousands of people, including lawmakers and cabinet members from around the world, former laureates and some university professors, are entitled to nominate people for the prize.
