Head of steering comittee of NAJU-Germany

From early age on I was active in several clubs and committees in school and in my local community, as well as in my hometown church. My engagement has been very diverse- Teamer for a youth camp, School leader and organizing “Days of sustainability” for younger grades. After my A-Levels I have worked as a volunteeer for the German Youth Association for the Protection of nature (NAJU), which gave me inside-knowledge of the structure and work of an NGO. I also gained skills of environmental education, especially for children. Since October 2012 I can consider myself head of the steering committee of NAJU and I am deeply involved in the preparation for the Youth Future Conference 2013.

In 2010 is was lucky enough to join the first Youth Future Conference in Bonn and to experience the inspiring and motivating Laureates of the Alternative Nobel Prize. This encouraged me to fight together with young people for a sustainable future. I want to give other young engaged people the chance to also make this life-changing experience. I hope that we can build a network all over Europe to bundle our energy, resources and spirit and to fight together for a rethinking. This conference is a guide for interdisciplinary learning and I am optimistic that this will lead us to future answers. “Hope is not what we find in evidence, it’s what we become in action.” (Francis Moore Lappé)
