Philipp Wilfinger

Student and Climate Activist at Fridays For Future Vienna

Philipp Wilfinger studied Environmental Systems Sciences and Business Administration at the University of Graz and is now doing his Master in Global Studies, with a focus in Business Ethics and Sustainability.

He attended the COP24 Climate Conference 2018 in Katowice as Austrian Youth Delegate. Following that, he started the Fridays For Future Climate Strikes in Vienna together with two friends, knowing that urgent and radical political action at all levels is needed, to fulfill the 1,5°C-Goal set in the Paris Agreement and prevent climatic and ecological breakdown in the coming decades.

Philipp looks at environmental problems from a systemic and holistic perspective and wants to create a socially and ecologically just future for current and future generations.
