How does it matter? What’s relevant now? — Have a look at the CITYMAKERS-Global Village Map by Yimeng Wu, watch the Harvest-Impression Video by Kika Yang and read the special interviews conducted by Katja Hellkoetter with 8 partners and peers from the network.
The iac Berlin was founded by the Robert Bosch foundation to develop and disseminate an approach to alumni work that encourages and spreads positive social impact. With a definition of alumni “that includes those people who were, in one way or another, supported by the foundation (…) and who are therefore partners of the foundations who once supported them.“ CITYMAKES and its whole network is naturally also a partner of the iac. The iac positions itself as a Do- and Think Tank, hosts regular learning events and has various formats and small grants to offer to the Alumni community to organize practitioner labs, exchange and learning.
