Frederique Seidel is the WCC Programme Executive for Child Rights and Manager of the WCC-UNICEF Partnership. Her initiative for climate justice for and with children and youth was awarded with the Keeling Curve Prize in 2019. She has worked in various countries for UNICEF, as a Deputy Representative, Child Rights Education Programme Manager, Communication Specialist and Head of Field Office. Earlier she served as a spokesperson for the UN and the OSCE in post-war Balkans and as a journalist for Deutsche Welle TV in Germany. Frederique Seidel collaborates in the Global Partnership to End Violence against Children since 2017. She advocates for the integration of climate solutions into operations of all organisations which care about children, and the recognition of the eco-anxiety as an unintended form of violence against children. Her current research focuses on climate-responsible finance as an efficient and vital measure for child protection. She promotes peacebuilding through the Churches’ Commitments to Children and inter-religious collaboration. Seidel holds a master’s degree of Sociology of the Sorbonne and Freie Universität Berlin and specialized in Educational Science and International Relations at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques in Paris.
