Karin Björnsdotter Wanngård (born 29 June 1975), is a Swedish politician who was Mayor of Stockholm from 2014 to 2018. She is a member of the Social Democrats, and has been city councillor of Stockholm Municipality since 1994.
Wanngård was appointed leader of the Social Democrats in Stockholm Municipality in 2011, and served as the city's leader of the opposition until 2014. Following the 2014 municipal election, Wanngård formed a coalition consisting of her own Social Democrats, the Green Party, the Left Party, and the Feminist Initiative, which together holds a majority in the city council.
In early 2017, Wanngård announced her coal usage elimination goal for Stockholm to be complete by 2022. She became one of sixteen women who lead large cities that address climate change.
