World-changing activists Greta Thunberg and Malala Yousafzai met in the U.K.

The pair shared their meeting on social media.

Malala Yousafzai, the young Pakistani activist whose championing of education made her the youngest recipient of the Nobel Prize, just met climate change activist Greta Thunberg at Oxford University.

Thunberg, who hit the world stage thanks to her Friday protests at the Swedish parliament, has been entered into the running for the Nobel Prize herself.

This was followed by a tweet where Malala said, "She's the only friend I'd skip school for."

Meanwhile, Greta shared a second pic of the pair on her own account, writing: “So... today I met my role model. What else can I say?”

This isn't the first time Yousafzai tweeted her support for Thunberg. Last September, she tweeted, “I’m so happy to see that young women around the world are leading the climate movement. Thank you to girls like @GretaThunberg for using your voice, speaking truth to power — and encouraging other young people to do the same,” she wrote.

For her part, Thunberg was there to lead a school strike in Bristol, near where Yousafzai is currently an undergraduate student studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford University, and should graduate this summer.
