Fridays for Future – Czech Republic

Magdaléna Středová

I am 17 years old and I am a second-year student of media communication at a high school in Prague. I like to write, I publish in a school magazine. I have been a member of the student climate movement Fridays for Future for a year and a half, where I worked on last year’s election campaign, and where I am currently mainly involved in communicating with the public through our social networks.

Matyáš Dynka

I am 19 and I am currently graduating from the grammar school in Zlín. In the movement, I do mostly work connected to graphics and communication, but occasionally I also appear as a speaker at events. I do activism mainly because I cannot sit idly by and watch humanity float in the turbulent waters of the climate crisis. The future concerns us all. I want to take part in mine.

Ema Ostřížková

I am 20 years old and I am a first year student of Media Studies at the Faculty of Social Sciences, Charles University. In the field of activism, I deal mainly with the issue of climate change in the Fridays For Future movement. I have been involved in the movement since the establishment of the Czech branch in 2019. In the movement, I participate in the organization of events, administration of social networks, video production and I also act as a spokesperson for the Moravian-Silesian Region. In my free time I devote myself to documentary filmmaking, slow fashion design and skateboarding.

Fridays for Future – Hungary

Lili Aschenbrenner

I’m Lili, a 17-year-old high school student. I have been an organiser of the Fridays for Future movement in Hungary for almost three years. During this time I have met communities and people I would never want to forget, everything in my life has changed on a level I can’t imagine, in a good way. One of the most important things I am involved with in our local group is international communication – the cooperation between Hungarian and international FFF groups.

Kinga Somlói

I am Kinga, 19 years old, still in high school. I have been playing the piano for 10 years and I love reading. I’ve been interested in environmental protection for a long time, but I only joined the Hungarian FFF at the end of 2021, but I’ve already grown fond of the community.

Márton Veszprémy

I joined the Hungarian FFF at the 8th protest in April 2019, as a student, and since then I have represented the movement at several events (conference, roundtable, interview, embassy, etc.). Although I am a humanities graduate, I have a long-standing interest in the environment. I find the climate protests of young people very important and inspiring and I believe it is the most effective tool we have to make a real difference.
