Climate Activist, Fridays for Future
Franziska Wessel is 16 years old and a student of a Berlin grammar school. When she went to her first Fridays for Future (fridaysforfuture.de) demonstration in January 2019, she was initially not politically active - but that changed abruptly.
In the meantime she became one of the organizers, both in Berlin and nationwide, thus active in many areas as well as responsible for them. In addition, she represents the movement as a press spokesperson at various events and performances. In February 2020 she published the book "You for Future" as co-author.
