Young climate activist Greta Thunberg met Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai at Oxford University on Tuesday and posed for a photo.
Yousafzai, widely known by her first name Malala, is a student at Oxford University.
The 22-year-old posted a photo of herself and Ms. Thunberg on Instagram, with her arms around each other on a bench, with the heading "Thank you, @gretathunberg" and a heart emoji.
17-year-old Thunberg is in the UK on Friday to join a school strike in Bristol.
Both women became known worldwide after working on key global issues: climate change and women's education.
Thunberg became a household name after skipping school in Sweden to protest climate change, while Malala was shot in the head by the Taliban in Pakistan for campaigning for girls to go to school.
In 2014, Malala became the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize for advocating education. It has become a global symbol of women's resilience to oppression.
Ms. Thunberg was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2019 and 2020.
The two met to discuss their activism at Lady Margaret Hall, Malala's Oxford College. Ms. Thunberg also spoke to some students about climate change and protest.
College master Alan Rusbridger posted a photo of Thunberg on his own Instagram and Twitter, saying that it was an honor to house Ms. Thunberg and grateful that she had found time to speak to the students.
Malala also posted the photo on Twitter and commented: "She is the only friend I would skip school for."
