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 and consequences of a changing climate system. From autumn 2020 onward she continues her studies in Geography in the Master´s programme at the University of Bonn.
From 2017 to 2019 she was a working student for the region of Ostallgäu, where she initiated and realised projects for the mitigation of climate change with target groups ranging from companies and house owners to school children. She also supported the development of an adaptation strategy for the region in a broad participatory process. An internship at alpS in Innsbruck within the Erasmus programme allowed her to gain further experience with climate change adaptation as she evaluated the outcomes of a funding programme in the province of Tyrol.
