Have you ever wondered how you could live more sustainably? Or whether the current socio-economic narrative disincentivises ethical lifestyles? Are you interested in the limitations of how government can nudge businesses to be more sustainable? Would you like to share those ideas and thoughts with like-minded people? Or perhaps you're just curious about contemporary perspectives on sustainable development. Then this meet up is for you!
Our meetup is a platform which facilitates open-discourse on the topic of sustainability and all that it may encompass. From individual practitioners to the business and governmental policies, we seek to explore their inter-dependency and how our current generation can meet our own needs without compromising the ability of the future generation to meet theirs.
To address this existential issue, cities will need to play a key role in this transition as it is the main engine of growth and innovation. Berlin is a diverse multifaceted, multicultural city and we believe that we as individuals; with our different perspectives can come together to share good practices and ideas to promote sustainability.
Currently, we are a diverse group ranging from students, researchers, job seekers, part-timers, scientists and practitioners. Through this initiative, we seek to enrich our understanding as well as share our ideas with other cities.
The format of the meetup will evolve as we progress, initially to just share some ideas, and during its growth we would like to host film nights, invite guest speakers, book club sessions and review articles. The themes for discussion are open to members and we invite suggestions. We plan to meet up once a month, do join us!
