According to Germany's state broadcaster ZDF, a third of young Germans voted for the Greens.
23-year-old climate activist Luisa Neubauer, who led the Fridays for Future school strikes, called this election a "climate election."
"The election results speak for itself. We young people didn’t just bring the climate crisis [to] the streets -- we brought it to the ballot boxes," Neubauer told CNN.
"This is the future speaking up -- it turns out that voters don’t trust parties other than the Green Party to tackle the climate crisis."
