Prof. Dr. Claudia Kemfert
2014 to 2020 honorary city councilor for the Green Party. Since May 2020 Second Mayor. Chairwoman of the Committees for Construction, Labor and Economics, Culture, Climate and Environment, and Mobility. Coordinator of the thematic areas Labor and Economy, Gender Equality, Education for Sustainable Development, and Europe and International Affairs. “Munich is a beautiful city. The parks and green spaces, the proximity to the mountains, the many cultural opportunities and the cosmopolitanism make Munich attractive. At the same time, our success poses major challenges for our city, for example in terms of traffic and rents. As mayor, I want to work to set the right course in the coming years so that Munich remains livable – and home to all people, regardless of their pockets.
One of the biggest tasks for the future, in addition to a well-done traffic turnaround, is environmental and climate protection. Cities are responsible for two-thirds of global CO2 emissions. Making Munich climate-neutral is therefore necessary – for the sake of our children and grandchildren. At the same time, we must continue to be economically successful, because a modern infrastructure, urban housing, good social services and a rich cultural offering cost money. As a Green and a graduate in business administration, I stand for a climate-friendly economy and climate. I entered politics because I want to help shape the future of our beautiful city – for the benefit of all citizens. But that is only possible if you know what moves people. Therefore, do not hesitate to contact me or write to me. I will always have an open ear for you.”
