Climate activist Greta Thunberg has been named Time magazine's 'Person of the Year'.
The 16-year-old Swedish teenager - known for leading the school strike movement - has become the youngest ever person to receive the accolade.
In an article explaining the choice, Time's editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal said: "Meaningful change rarely happens without the galvanizing force of influential individuals, and in 2019, the earth’s existential crisis found one in Greta Thunberg
"For sounding the alarm about humanity’s predatory relationship with the only home we have, for bringing to a fragmented world a voice that transcends backgrounds and borders, for showing us all what it might look like when a new generation leads, Greta Thunberg is TIME’s 2019 Person of the Year."
The accolade comes shortly after Ms Thunberg's return to Europe via yacht following a trip to address the UN in New York.
This year's person of the year shortlist included the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Donald Trump and the Hong Kong protesters.
It's the first year since 2016 that the magazine has chosen an individual for their person of the year, having named 'silence breakers' and prosecuted journalists as their choices in the past two years.
