The city that hosts her talk couldn’t be more appropriate. Freiburg is regarded as one of the birthplaces of the environmental movement. With a population estimated at 226 thousand citizens, the city is located in Baden-Württemberg state, and one of the symbols of the fight against nuclear power plants over the world.
In the 1970s, the people of Freiburg lead a successful action against the Wyhl nuclear power plant, one of the founding moments of the alternative-green movement.
