Rome's Fridays For Future to welcome Greta Thunberg on 19 April.
Thunberg rose to international prominence last August for organising the first 'School strike for climate', also known as Fridays For Future, a global movement of school students who swap classes for demonstrations to demand action to prevent further global warming and climate change.
Thunberg's presence in Rome was announced by the young people behind Fridays For Future di Roma who stated: "We hope that politicians understand that the time has come to listen to scientists from abroad and in Italy who remind us that there is no time to lose [in relation to climate change]."
On 18 April Thunberg will be received by Italy's senate speaker Elisabetta Alberti Casellati for a discussion on climate and the environment.
