Swedish teen climate activist Greta Thunberg is pledging to donate $1.15 million she's won in prize money to groups working to fight climate change.

Thunberg was selected to win the inaugural Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity from 136 nominees from 46 different countries, the foundation said in a statement. She was chosen because of the way she “has been able to mobilise younger generations for the cause of climate change and her tenacious struggle to alter a status quo that persists," said Jorge Sampaio, chair of the prize jury, in a statement.

In a Twitter video posted Monday, Thunberg responded by saying the earnings would be donated: “That is more money than I can begin to imagine, but all the prize money will be donated, through my foundation, to different organisations and projects who are working to help people on the front line, affected by the climate crisis and ecological crisis.”
