So far, there have been regular walkouts around the world, including in countries likes Germany, Belgium, the UK, France, Australia and Japan.

The prize is announced in October and awarded in December in the Norwegian capital, Oslo.

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