At the end of January it became known that the Swedish lawmakers sent a letter to the Nobel Committee to nominate ecoactivists Greta Thunberg for the Nobel peace prize.

In its latest offering on climate change and the threat global warming poses to the world, BBC is onset to release a documentary series featuring Greta Thunberg - the 17-year old climate change activist from Sweden. The series is expected to follow her on the campaign trail, as well as documenting the 17-year-old's journey into adulthood.

The project was announced Monday at the BBC Showcase trade show.

The announcement of the BBC series follows news that the USA broadcaster Hulu is making a documentary about Thunberg with the working title "Greta".

"Climate change is probably the most important issue of our lives, so it feels timely to make an authoritative series that explores the facts and science behind this complex subject", said Rob Liddell, BBC Studios' executive producer.

BBC will follow the Swiss teenager in her efforts to reduce climate change by making people aware of its effects. She has split opinion across the planet, with some hailing her as a hero whilst others very critical of showing such passion at a young age.

The Swedish teen was also announced as Time Magazine's 2019 Person of the Year as a result of her constant work for Climate Action. The filming of the series will deal with the scientific division of the BBC Studios.

Thunberg's journey is also being documented in the upcoming Hulu documentary, "Greta", which also showcases her early school strike in Stockholm to her efforts to parliaments and global protests.
