Sonja joined urgewald in January 2021. Before that, she coordinated European campaigns on climate and energy policy from Brussels and Berlin for many years. She also has a wide range of experience on human rights and world trade issues from her work for various NGOs. Global justice and transformative solutions to the climate crisis are particularly important to her. At urgewald, she is now using her in-depth knowledge of climate and energy in campaigns for German energy suppliers.
Sonja pursues her enthusiasm for nature on kayak tours with her family and likes to climb. As a biologist, she has spent a lot of time in the tropical rainforest and can tell exciting anecdotes about the social behavior of the sac-winged bat.
