Meet the Changemakers – Berlin Global Village x Impact Hub Berlin
Join us for an evening of presentations focusing on two of our ecosystems – Sustainable Food and Diversity & Inclusion. Our speakers will introduce themselves, their stories and current impact projects.
The event will be in pecha-kucha storytelling style and feature members from Impact Hub Berlin and Berlin Global Village. The evening will wrap up an engaging icebreaker followed by drinks and networking – an opportunity to connect with our communities!
In an effort to make everyone feel as comfortable as possible, the presentations will take place in both German and English.
Who are this month’s changemakers?
Sustainable Food Ecosystem:
Nadine Berger & Lutz Heiden, Managing Coordinators of Aktionsbündnis Fairer Handel (Berlin Global Village)
The Aktionsbündnis Fairer Handel Berlin is a voluntary cooperation of organisations and individuals who are committed to promoting Fair Trade in and around Berlin. Their goal is to strengthen Fair Trade in Berlin by building long-term relationships that centre cooperation and action. They hope to make the public aware of the diversity and impact of the Berlin Fair Trade movement and highlight the concerns of Fair Trade, One World and the growth of globalisation.
Nico Nettelmann, Founder @ Geofoods
Geofoods is a consultancy and think tank which uses the power of geography to facilitate a just transition. Based on a critical analysis of food geographies they aim to craft frameworks and pilot projects for a just transition. They facilitate practical engagement, connect people and encourage cross-sectoral collaboration.
Diversity & Inclusion Ecosystem:
Mariam Touré, Project Coordinator and Coordinator of the PR at Zentralrat der Afrikanischen Gemeinde Deutschlands e.V: (ZAGD) (Berlin Global Village)
Kevin Borgböhmer, Project Manager at Zentralrat der Afrikanischen Gemeinde Deutschlands e.V: (ZAGD) (Berlin Global Village)
With the Germany-wide model project “Encounter and Sport as a Bridge to Integration”, the Central Council of the African Community in Germany (ZAGD), would like to contribute to informal and playful encounters between people of African origin and German institutions.
At sports tournaments with different team constellations, there are many local police, firefighters and technical relief organisations involved. Through the project, both groups of people can get to know each other, break down prejudices and network on a local level. The possibilities for more participation and youth support for young African adolescents will also be discussed.
Juliane Seumel, Head of Fundraising & Partnerships at Jobs4refugees (Impact Hub Berlin)
