Jakub (Slovakia, Klíma ťa potrebuje) views climate change as an opportunity for a shift that will lead to a more just and equitable world. Jakub believes that specific plans and targeted measures, which take into account the social aspects of transformation, are the necessary response to the climate crisis today. He initiated the organization of the Fridays For Future movement in Slovakia and is a co-leader of the grassroots organization Klíma ťa potrebuje. Together, they strive for a just and socially sensitive solution to climate change through active involvement and participation of citizens and communities.

We develop and debate progressive ideas and bring together leading actors who turn thoughts into action. Our think tank’s goal: making the just transformation a reality. ▸ Learn more
