Finally, a nearby burger joint that has tasty Beyond Meat burgers readily available!

Here are my five pledges to support climate action in 2019:
What do you plan to do?
Over the last five days I had the honor and pleasure to be able to support the Fridays for Future summer congress #SoKoFuture in Dortmund as a volunteer.
And was I in for a treat!
I have never seen so many people being so kind to each other, working all day diligently and earnestly on the most pressing issues of our time, and coming up with ideas on how to save our planet – people, especially politicians, who belittle these efforts should be ashamed.
The center-right paper “Die Welt” called the congress the Political Woodstock – I think that’s quite a fitting description.
After spending this time with all these young people I know for sure that a different world will be possible.
The Fridays deserve our full support!
I am very happy about voter turnout in Sunday’s European Elections and even more happy about the strong support for the Greens!
Many people have understood that we need to take urgent action to protect our climate and our environment, and that we cannot do it alone – it needs a regional and global approach.
With their newfound power, the Greens can now affect change in Europe and work with S&D, ALDE and EPP to protect our climate for future generations!
I’m also quite happy that in Cologne the Greens came in first, with almost 33% of votes – in the city center the Greens were almost at 43%. Yay!
