My motivation to run for the Klimaliste Berlin:
Hundreds of thousands of us were on the streets! I let myself be dragged away from the Potsdamer Platz by the Berlin police. Scientists and activists of the movement are insisting that we have to act. But the politicians are not willing to do what is necessary. So we have decided to do something about it ourselves!
This is what I would like to achieve in Berlin:
I would like Berlin to take its responsibility as a metropolis of the Global North seriously. We have to do our part in order to reach the ambitious goals set by the Paris Agreement. I dream of citizen councils in which Berliners reshape our ideas of “prosperity”. An economic system that works within our planetary boundaries is a must!
This is what you should know about me:
I am a real Berliner. I no longer believe in hope. I don’t think we need hope. We need courage. Courage to embrace change, to rewrite or discard old playbooks that have caused the current predicament, courage to embark on a new journey.
