I study biology at the University of Vienna. I couldn’t have chosen it better! Understanding ecosystems and evolution and learning about the chemical structures of life amazes me. Once you learn to understand how things are connected, you realise that the actions taken in climate politics are inconsequent and you start questioning if more could be done. I’m sure about that now. We, the youth, have plenty of potential, eagerness and motivation. Together, we can strive for progress. That is exactly what we will do at LCOY Austria and I’m looking forward to it!
I’m currently finishing my studies in Environment and Bioresources Management at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences and am specifically interested in the topic of climate and energy politics. I am fascinated by the ways people respond to climate change around the world and the potential there is in Austria. Climate change is a most pressing problem for me and one that I care about the most. For this reason I want to put my energy into it and am very enthusiastic about the organization of this conference. I can’t live without writing, art and sunrises in nature. If sometimes disappear for a moment, then I’m moving around the city of nature, singing, dancing, drawing or just enjoying a good book.
I study biology with a focus on ecology at the University of Vienna with the aim of getting a grip on the complexity of the living world. I started exploring my surrounding nature in the early childhood and kept on doing so. I wish for the generations after us to be able to do the same! That’s why I’m combining my main studies with courses and events concerning environmental politics and economics, and engaging in climate action. Beside all of this, I’m spending a fair amount of time outside climbing, swimming, and just fooling around. Besides that I’m active in foodsaving, and CO2-neutral traveling by thumbing. We are the generation that’ll be affected strongest by climate change. But we are also the generation that’s able to take action against it. Join us in finding out how!
I study physics at the Technical University of Vienna because I love to understand why the world appears to be as is and how crazy everything is in truth! I am passionate about nature and people, especially understanding the way societies and individuals think. To me, the climate crisis the most urgent, dangerous and worst communicated phenomena of our times, and I believe the solution lies in communal action as we strive for climate justice and an equanimous world. If you don´t know where I am, you´ll probably find me somewhere in the mountains hiking, climbing, slacklining, cuddling some animal on the way or scuba diving. I practice yoga and meditation and I stubbornly believe in the potential of every human to be wonderful.
After my studies in Environment and Bio-Resources Management at BOKU University I just started an international master program in Environmental Science. I want to focus my studies on environmental management and environmental politics in order to enable future generations to do what I loved most during my childhood: to experience and enjoy nature with all four seasons. In general, I want to contribute to creating a platform that allows people of all backgrounds to access information on climate change as an issue concerning us all. Even today, I prefer to spend my leisure time in nature, during summer I like to go hiking and climbing and in winter I like to do ski touring and teach skiing. I am convinced that there are many young, motivated people who are passionate about making change happen. It is in our hands to change the future!
