Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of her efforts to combat climate change.

"We have proposed Greta Thunberg because if we do nothing to halt climate change it will be the cause of wars, conflict and refugees", said Norwegian Socialist MP Freddy André Øvstegård.

"Greta Thunberg has launched a mass movement in which I see, perhaps, the main contribution to peace".

The 16-year-old Swede was nominated for the humanitarian award by three Norwegian politicians, who believe her work to engage young people and policy-makers alike on the dangers of climate change constitutes a real push for global peace.

After the news of her nomination broke, Thunberg took to Twitter to say she was "honoured and very grateful for this nomination".

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

She has even provided a template letter on the Facebook event page, Global Climate Strike, for those hoping to attend the protest to give to their schools.
