Chairwoman and Whip, Alliance 90/The Greens, Bavarian State Parliament



Katharina is the Chairwoman and Whip of the German Green Party (Alliance 90/The Greens) in the Bavarian State Parliament, and one of the youngest candidates ever elected to the state parliament. She is responsible for issues ranging from digitalization and the economy, to social policy and gender equity. She is also a member of the board of the national German Green Party. In the 2018 elections, Katharina was chosen as the top candidate for the Bavarian Green’s campaign and led the party to its historically best result as the leading opposition party. Katharina is inspired by the example of the White Rose student group that resisted National Socialism. Her mission is to make the world more sustainable and inclusive, true to the motto, “think global, act local.”
