Give Something Back to Berlin: The Official Launch!
by James Glazebrook
We’re super-excited to be helping to launch the inspiring new initiative Give Something Back to Berlin this Friday. One year after getting the feeling of “let’s do something – let’s get involved”, the GSBTB team are finally ready for their official launch – and we’d love you all to join us for a little celebration!
Give Something Back to Berlin is a platform connecting new Berliners with social initiatives. It’s about mixing, learning and sharing; about breaking down barriers between “us” and “them”; and about giving back to the city that we love. Through an online platform people can easily donate some of their time and skills to a local initiative that helps improve the city and the lives of the people that live here. One part Berlin DIY creativity, one part social engagement and one part social media makes a great equation for exciting collaborations! You can hear us talk about the project in this video, and read an interview with the GSBTB founders Anders and Annamaria by clicking on their little faces below
To celebrate the launch of the Give Something Back to Berlin website and the official start of the project, GSBTB and überlin want to invite you for a unpretentious release at the beautiful Agora co-working space in Neukölln this Friday! There will be free drinks and Korean sushi in the garden, followed by a short introduction to the project, before we open up the doors for the eclectic Agora Collect Festival.
Swing by to celebrate the many ways of giving something back – because this is just the start! Every skill and idea that we share will help develop Give Something Back to Berlin into an inspiring initiative that really works for the city! The only thing we know for sure, is that – Berlin being Berlin – this is the start of something really exciting
