...a Berlin based Social Entrepreneur, Dad, Urbanist, European and unwavering Optimist 🎉
I assume you've come here to get to know a bit more about me? Thanks for swinging by!
Let me take you on a 2-minute quick dive into my life.
🛠️ What am I working on in 2022?
I’m finishing my work on a big project...
Together with a team inside a large German welfare organisation, we’ve spent the past 2 years developing Kura21: a service offering built for the 21st century to support people in situations when they or their relatives can’t claim their own (legal) rights. The service will pilot in early 2023 in various German states, together with the launch of a digital support platform.
And I’m starting a new entrepreneurial adventure...
Throughout the last years, I have also spent many thoughts and conversations on the development of the housing crisis, the financial speculation around land, the merits of a united Europe, the longing for a life that’s more embedded in community and aligned with our planetary boundaries.
In 2022, I’m exploring how we (and it will need a lot of us 👋🏼)can build a European Housing Coop.
The goal is to create...
a way of living that caters to our mobile society - yet contributes to climate neutrality.
a model that fosters ownership & stability - and promotes community & sharing.
a financial framework that cuts out the profit oriented investor - but benefits the participating businesses.
a societal project that contributes to a united Europe - and to united neighbourhoods.
