Change happens on a local level!

On 24 May, from 18:00 to 20:00, our project Bridges – Brücken – Puentes hosted their first workshop!

The workshop took place at

Impact Hub Berlin
Friedrichstraße 246
10969 Berlin

The workshop aimed to tackle the growing disengagement with politics and sense of being unable to change something. Having surveyed and interviewed many local residents and organisations, FutureLab member Héloise Le Masne asked Berliners to come and debate with her the problems they see in their neighborhoods, identify the roots for their disengagement and find solutions to these problems without addressing them in a necessarily bureaucratic way.
