Sixteen-year-old Swedish student and environmental activist Greta Thunberg met Pope Francis in Rome on Wednesday.

She arrived in Rome earlier in the day and went to the general audience in St. Peter’s Square where she met and shook hands with Francis.

Thunberg is expected to lead a climate change rally in Rome on Friday 19. The teen has been demonstrating in front of the Swedish Parliament in Stockholm on Fridays since August 2018, under the motto “School strike for the climate,” has inspired a wave of similar student climate strikes around the world.
