Teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg speaks with Pope Francis

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg brought her campaign to the Vatican on Wednesday (April 17) and met Pope Francis, who sees eye-to-eye with her on the dangers of global warming.

The 16-year-old Swede sat in the front row at the pope's general audience in St.

Peter's Square and when her greeted her, she held up a small sign reading "Join the Climate Strike".

Thunberg, who has inspired a movement of children against global warming, chatted with the pope for a few minutes through an interpreter as she held up the sign.

Thousands of students around the world have since copied her and youth organisations have launched strikes involving students in more than 40 countries.

She is due to address Italian senators on Thursday (April 18).

On Tuesday in Strasbourg, she urged European leaders to act to save the planet in the same way they are pledging to rebuild Notre-Dame after a fire gutted the cathedral.
