Franziska Lotter

Franziska Lotter is a researcher in the field of climate change adaptation, working for Fresh Thoughts since 2019. Current projects she is involved in focus on the impacts of climate change on tourism and possible adaptation strategies. 

Franziska Lotter studied Geography at the University of Augsburg, where she focused on resources management and spatial planning. Furthermore, she researched environmental conflicts and regional influences as well as the consequences of a changing climate system. From autumn 2020 onward she continued her studies in Geography in the Master´s programme at the University of Bonn. 

From 2017 to 2019, she worked as a student trainee for the Ostallgäu region, where she initiated and implemented climate change mitigation projects with target groups ranging from companies and homeowners to schoolchildren. She also supported the development of an adaptation strategy for the region in a broad participatory process. An internship at alpS in Innsbruck as part of the Erasmus programme enabled her to gain further experience in climate change adaptation by evaluating the outcomes of a funding programme in the province of Tyrol.
