Katharina Schulze

Chairwoman Parliamentary Group
Group Alliance 90/The Greens

At the age of 34, Katharina Schulze is among the youngest parliamentarians in Bavaria and the face of the Bavarian Greens. Katharina Schulze wants to advance Bavaria into a state of ecological sustainability, digital opportunities, equal rights for women and cosmopolitanism. At the 2018 elections, while she was front-runner for the Greens, they received 17.5% of the votes. Due to this, they now represent the second-biggest parliamentary group in the Bavarian Parliament. Since November 2019 she is a member of the party’s Executive Committee on the federal level of Alliance 90/The Greens. Since October 2013, Katharina Schulze is Member of the State Parliament and first Vice Chairwoman than Chairwoman of the Green Party Parliamentary Group in Bavaria. She is the Green Spokeswoman for Domestic Affairs and a Member of the Committee for Community Affairs, Domestic Security and Sport. She grew up in the West of Munich, in Herrsching at Lake Ammersee. She studied Intercultural Communication, Political Science and Psychology at Ludwig-Maximilians-
Universität in Munich. Her internship with the Democratic Party in Michigan, USA, led her right into the heart of the campaign for Obama’s first term. After that, there was no doubt: It was time for her to get politically involved! That’s why she joined the Munich chapter of the Young Greens, where she was Chairwoman from January 2009 to January 2011. From 2010 to 2015 Katharina Schulze used to be the female City Chair of the Munich Greens.
