Alternative urbanism meets social entrepreneurship. China meets Europe. 30 CITYMAKERS from 16 cities – from Beijing and Berlin, Taipei and Vienna, Munich and Shanghai – all with powerful innovative ideas for future livable cities, came together for two and a half days at an almost magical place in the countryside south of Berlin: Drahnsdorf.
As a member of the effective altruism movement, Jah Ying Chung sees a lot of value in events like the CITYMAKERS Lab to create circumstances for change makers to exchange ideas, build warm communities and morally support each other. She describes the experiences that led her to take responsibility for her existence, create and eventually sell a business because of the distance between its mission and the actual impact created. With her broad experience within start-ups and social organisations, she identified a gap that she is now dedicating her time to fill: Her consultancy “The Good Growth Co” helps companies after their successful launching period to develop a consistent strategy for their development.
