 Meet our 2020-2021 Work-Study Student!

Naomi Zimmermann

Hallo everyone!

I’m Naomi Zimmermann, a junior studying environmental science at Barnard, and I use she/her/hers pronouns. This is going to be a blog all about German pop culture and current issues. I’m interested in all things sustainability and also am a proud vegetarian/vegan, so expect to see some posts about Germany’s role at the forefront of sustainable development and its (surprisingly) booming vegan food market. To get you started, I’ve compiled some fun resources about Germany.

Let's Talk About Green Cities: Freiburg

The birthplace of the environmental movement in Germany, it comes as no surprise that Freiburg continues to be at the forefront of sustainability.
