Jakob Schou K.

Climate Reality Leader

LawyerAarhus University



Born to a Polish/Jewish, Russian father who grew up in a refugee camp in West-Germany after World War II and a German mother who managed to leave the DDR for the West as one of only a few it is safe to say that my family background has informed my life and vocational choices. I have more than 4 years of academic experience in Denmark, Australia and the United Kingdom respectively, with excellent results. Moreover, I have lived and studied in the United States, Germany, and Sweden and worked in South Africa, Spain and Switzerland. I have completed internships in South Africa, the UK and Copenhagen and currently intern at the OHCHR in Geneva. I have extensive experience working in international environments with well-developed research and organisational skills. I supplemented my academic knowledge with a 3 week summer course in Climate Law in 2018 passing with distinction and became a Climate Reality Leader same year. All previous employers, internship and academic supervisors have spoken highly of my intellectual capabilities, dedication and hard work, passion, attention to detail and excellent interpersonal skills.
