Today’s youth are among the most vulnerable populations who will bear the brunt of the climate crisis. Fridays for Future (FFF), the youth-led climate movement inspired by Greta Thunberg, has been ringing alarm bells about the climate emergency around the globe ever since Thunberg began her school strikes in front of the Swedish Parliament in 2018. For March 25th, 2022 the movement has once again called for a global climate strike.
In Germany, FFF has the largest following among young people and has been critical of the new coalition government’s climate and energy policies as it nears the end of its first 100 days in office.
Join us for a conversation with climate activists and Fridays for Future Germany co-organizers Luisa Neubauer and Helena Marschall, who will talk about their ideas for a better future and what we must do to get there.
