Carla Reemtsma is an activist organizing school strikes with Fridays For Future and other climate protests. After Greta Thunberg’s famous speech at the climate conference in Katowice went viral, she organized the first climate strike in her university town Münster in front of the town hall on a rainy Friday in January 2019. Overwhelmed by the amount of people supporting the protests she continued organizing the following worldwide school strikes. For nearly two years now, she has been planning mass protests, attacking coal companies and speaking about climate justice. On the days she’s not protesting, she studies politics and economics and teaches gymnastics to children.
