Creating Communities that Matter
16th May 2019 @ betahaus Kreuzberg, Innospace
In the first event of this series, organized with CO-Happening, we explore what is actually involved in building a community as our guest speakers describe the challenges, triumphs, experiences and processes involved in successfully building their own communities. We’ll discuss communities for sustainability, how to build them, why they are important to everybody on this planet and what it takes to be a good community member.
Climate KIC has been successfully funded and supported numerous projects for sustainability and understands, that communities and movements are crucial success factors to have a real climate impact. Michelle Zucker, Community Activation Director at Climate-KIC, will tell us all about the importance of communities for sustainability and the experience Climate-KIC had with building and running them.
Impact Hub is a strong example for a successful community around social entrepreneurship. The community through some changes over the year and evolved from a single large community into a number of focussed sub-communities. Maaike Hoogstede, Head of Community at Impact Hub Berlin, will share some insights with us on how that process went and what next steps and challenges the team is facing.
