From refugees and migrants without a roof in their new country to leaky roofs in the slums of Africa, our speakers in this edition give back their dignity to the disadvantaged - Social-Bee by providing professional reinsertion and Start Somewhere by giving durable housing, one concrete block at a time.
Mathias Wiedemann, Sales & Business Development
Social-Bee is a social business that takes corporate social responsibility with the goal to make the world better, integrating refugees and migrants by providing job opportunities. As a non-profit organization, they reinvent the model of temporary work in a social way. They hire the disadvantaged and place them in companies. The resulting income is used to provide care and training for the refugees. The goal is to offer a stable contract after 1.5 years at the latest.
Every life matters - with every job they create perspectives and promote a colorful society.
Oliver Von Malm, Kristina Cress, and Silvia Hesse
Start Somewhere is a non-profit limited organization from Munich with eight years of experience in development cooperation in one of the largest slums in Africa: Kibera, Nairobi (Kenya). The vision of Start Somewhere is the sustainable improvement of living conditions in the slums of this world. In concrete terms, Start Somewhere is developing a flexible, reusable, cost-effective and fireproof construction system for buildings in slums. The resulting hollow concrete blocks can be assembled and disassembled by hand as a modular, mortarless plug-in system. For the first time, any angle can also be realized steplessly in the floor plan.
We open the doors at 7.00pm
Talk at 7.30 pm
Followed by discussion and networking
Drinks and food will be sponsored by our awesome host, Stylight!
