A 16- year old girl, Greta Thunberg, the Swedish schoolgirl has been nominated as a candidate to receive this year's Nobel Peace Prize. If she were to win, she would be the youngest recipient since Pakistan's Malala Yousafzai, who was 17 when she received the prize.
Talking about Greta Thunberg the little girl not only understand about the living planet but she has inspired an international movement to fight for the climate change. In her movement, she inspired the students to leave the school to part of this movement.
She sits outside the Swedish Parliament along with other students to force the politicians to act on climate change. She says “I am doing this because nobody else is doing anything.
