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.

If she were to win, she would be the youngest recipient since Pakistan's Malala Yousafzai, who was 17 when she received the prize.

"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 said.

"Greta Thunberg has launched a mass movement which I see as a major contribution to peace", he added.

What are the school protests?

On Friday, thousands of schoolchildren are expected to strike again against climate change in more than 100 countries around the world.

Sanders Spox Apologizes For Invoking Anti-Semitic Slur
Sisa asked the question Sunday in a Facebook thread in which she said that, like Sanders, she stood with Minnesota Democratic Rep. Sanders' campaign did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

The school strikes were inspired by the Fridays For The Future movement started by Ms Thunberg under the hashtag #FridaysForFuture.

At a World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, in January, she ended her speech by telling a silenced room that she wants leaders to "behave like our house is on fire, because it is". Any person who meets the nomination criteria is considered.

The Nobel prizes are awarded each year on December 10, coinciding with the anniversary of the death of its founder Alfred Nobel, in a double ceremony: at the Oslo City Hall in Norway, for the Peace Prize, and in the Konserthus in Stockholm, Sweden, for the other five awards.

There are 301 candidates (223 individuals, and 78 organizations) for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize, according to the Nobel Foundation.

The Nobel Peace Prize a year ago went to Congo's Denis Mukwege and Iraq's Nadia Murad for "their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict", according to the Nobel Committee's ruling.
