In this podcast series, Kika Yang spoke with CITYMAKERS Lab participants about their personal motivations and background as city makers and invited them to brainstorm about the potentials of the CITYMAKERS platform.
In his talk with Kika Yang, which was recorded at the CITYMAKERS Social Entrepreneurship Competence Lab in May 2019, Sebastian Schlecht shares how enriching it can be to experience different perspectives of particular processes. Several years of architectural design background, followed by a position at the city administration of Stadt Essen – Das Stadtportal – which received the Official European Green Capital Award – and the coordination of JAS Jugend Architektur Stadt e.V. (Youth & Architecture Association) provided him with a broad perspective of the methodologies that define our cities. Being an optimist, he believes that we have the necessary resources to generate, test and implement new solutions to sustainable built environments: All that is needed are participatory programs.
