Let’s start talking with people instead of about them.
I have been interested in climate change and social justice since my school days. After my bachelor’s degree in Business Informatics, I chose to do the interdisciplinary master’s program Responsibility in Science, Engineering, and Technology at the TU Munich, which dealt with issues of social responsibility in an increasingly technologically oriented society. As part of my master’s thesis, I looked at the discourse around a sustainable transformation of the transport sector. I am particularly interested in how an ecological transformation can be designed so that social justice and sustainability goals are not seen as competing but as intertwined.
