Luisa Neubauer

Climate Activist, Fridays for Future Movement

Luisa Neubauer is a 26-years old climate activist from Germany and the most prominent representative of the German climate movement. In 2022, the TIMES listed her as one of the 100 global emerging voices. In 2018 she met the Swedish student Greta Thunberg at the UN Climate Change Conference and then started the movement in Germany together with other activists. Since then, Luisa Neubauer has been involved in organizing eleven global climate strikes, has met various heads of state and government, participated at four UN climate conferences and frequently speaks on global stages. In January 2020, Luisa Neubauer protested together with Fridays for Future against Siemens' participation in the planned Australian hard coal mine Carmichael and met Joe Kaeser several times. In 2021 she and others won a climate litigation case against the German Government, which has been considered a historic ruling.

Luisa Neubauer completed a bachelor's degree in geography and currently studies resource analysis and management as a master at the Georg-August University in Göttingen. She has published three books, all of which discuss the climate emergency from different angles, deploying methods of story telling and science communication. The latest book which roughly translates to "Resisting Despair" was written together with her 89-years old grandmother. Luisa's first book which was written together with Alexander Repenning will be released in English in the US in spring 2023. Luisa Neubauer hosts the Spotify climate podcast "1,5 Degrees" and lives in Berlin.
