Our Managing Director

Henrike Lindemann

After several inspiring years in the change and transformation scene, Henrike Lindemann is back in the field of environmental law as Managing Director of GLI since the beginning of 2021. Already from 2010 to 2013, she worked as a lawyer in the anti-coal campaign of Deutsche Umwelthilfe. Before that, she had been politically active in the context of international climate negotiations, in addition to her law studies in Frankfurt (Oder) and legal clerkship (both with a focus on international and European law as well as environmental law). “Many environmental associations use access to justice – but so far there has been no actor in Germany that has explicitly and urgently protected and strengthened it. We want to close this gap with GLI and support environmental and climate protection organizations in doing so.”

Our staff at the office

Tatjana Thiel

Tatjana Thiel holds a degree in economics with a focus on sustainability and justice issues. She was a committed environmental activist at Greenpeace and other NGOs for several years. At ProVeg she developed the administrative and association structures. Her motivation for GLI: “The approach of GLI to strategically advocate for overarching environmental regulatory concerns is inspiring. As an administrative all-rounder, I can actively help shape the association’s development in a needs-oriented fashion. In addition, I can help build a cross-movement legal aid network to help activists get justice.”
