Green City and Mikado UMdieWELT start new cooperation, supported by Munich Re Foundation
The young generation in particular is facing enormous challenges and an uncertain future due to climate change. With environmental movements such as Fridays for Future (FFF), initiatives have emerged for the first time that motivate large groups of young people to get involved in climate protection. But more than 40 percent of the FFF demonstrators come from the upper middle class, are white and are well-educated. People with a migration biography are underrepresented in these movements compared to the overall population. This is neither due to a lack of interest nor a lack of willingness. Very often, people with a migration biography simply do not have the same educational opportunities.
At the same time, the debate on climate justice shows that it is mainly people with migration biographies, from precarious backgrounds and in the Global South who suffer more from the effects of climate change. And this despite the fact that they have contributed the least to climate change.
