When I was 5 and my aunt told me not to eat the snow in the city park I understood that something is wrong. Since then I'm an environmentalist, trying my best to live in a sustainable way in everyday life, and encouraging others to do the same. Now I'm studying social environmental sciences at university and I spend most of my free time on voluntary work for the environment.
I strongly believe in a sustainable future that we will create together! I'm happy to share this space with you, to exchange experiences and join our forces. When we are many who work together towards the same goal, it's much more fun and more realistic that we will succeed. Come and save the world with me :)

Please keep me update any youth environment-related event, may be we can meet and share our new experience in that event.
I will write you an e-mail sending the last submission of the EU (Germany does not have a single position - at least not officially - in this respect), where the german position can be found.
Cheers and good luck playing Siggi Gabriel ;o)
