Board of Directors

The Foun­da­tion for the Rights of Future Gen­er­a­tions has one of the youngest boards in Ger­many. The board rep­re­sents the foun­da­tion, organ­is­es projects, starts cam­paigns and draws up posi­tion papers. It man­ages the foundation’s funds and pre­pares the annu­al report.


Carl-Georg Christoph Luft (Chair of the board)

born in 1989, is research assis­tant in the evi­dence-based pol­i­cy advi­so­ry depart­ment of the Leib­niz Insti­tute for Finan­cial Research SAFE. As behav­ioral econ­o­mist at the Ger­man Fed­er­al Armed Forces Uni­ver­si­ty (Bun­deswehr Uni­ver­sität), he focus­es on opti­miz­ing the pen­sion-relat­ed choice archi­tec­ture for Mil­len­ni­als, for which he received the Lamb­s­dorff Schol­ar­ship of the Nau­mann Foun­da­tion. He con­duct­ed research at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Oxford at the invi­ta­tion of Nuffield Col­lege. Owing to his spe­cial­i­sa­tion in finance at the Uni­ver­si­ty of St Andrews, Goethe Uni­ver­si­ty Frank­furt and Copen­hagen Busi­ness School, the econ­o­mist gained expe­ri­ence in the finan­cial indus­try and busi­ness con­sult­ing. Fur­ther­more, he is a Fel­low of the Roy­al Soci­ety of Arts.


Nicole Agit
born in 1995, stud­ied social sci­ences (BA) at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Mar­burg, Ger­many. She focused on soci­o­log­i­cal the­o­ries, social struc­ture and con­flict analy­sis, and meth­ods of empir­i­cal social research. She ded­i­cat­ed her bach­e­lor the­sis to the top­ic “Care work and migra­tion — A gen­der-soci­o­log­i­cal analy­sis of Euro­pean care chains using the exam­ple of Pol­ish live-in care in Germany”.

Spe­cialisms: care pol­i­cy, health pol­i­cy, cli­mate policy




Sophie Neuen­dorf
was born in 1995 and is cur­rent­ly work­ing as a nurse in Hei­del­berg. After leav­ing school she vol­un­teered for a year at the Mannheim Uni­ver­si­ty Hos­pi­tal. After begin­ning her lat­est stud­ies she start­ed to think more broad­ly about the options open to young peo­ple – espe­cial­ly in the health­care sec­tor – and about how they adapt to work­ing con­di­tions there.

Spe­cialisms: health pol­i­cy, men­tal health, the vot­ing age



Jörg Trem­mel

Project Manager

Jörg Trem­mel (project man­ag­er “walk­shops”)

Dr. Dr. Jörg Trem­mel super­vis­es the “walk­shops” of the FRFG. The main idea is that learn­ing can hap­pen while you are walk­ing (thus the com­bi­na­tion of the words “work­shop” and “walk” = “walk­shop”). The learn­ing is done with the help of audi­to­ry teach­ing and learn­ing mate­ri­als dur­ing a hike last­ing sev­er­al days. Mov­ing around in dif­fer­ent land­scapes in the course of mul­ti-day walks cre­ates a frame­work in which the fol­low­ing didac­tic mod­ules are used:
1) the cur­ricu­lum of audi­to­ry learn­ing mate­ri­als lis­tened to while walking.
2) the vis­it of learn­ing places locat­ed on the route
3) evening dis­cus­sion events in dif­fer­ent cities
