Mitglied des Beirates

"Equality of opportunity and intergenerational justice are central to the cohesion of society. To ensure that political decisions take this into account, it is important to have diverse parliaments in which young people and their interests are also adequately represented. Political education at a young age and the voting age of 16 are therefore matters close to my heart."
