On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of city relations between Berlin and Beijing our CITYMAKERS-team developed a new framework for Sino-German twin cities to further learn and innovate for liveable city making.

Jana Brokate first came in touch with the CITYMAKERS platform through the Berlin Beijing Learning Map, which focuses on people and places at the intersection between both cities. Being a true Berlin-Beijing-ren herself, she was delighted about the invitation to contribute.
Jana has always been interested in global issues and their understanding through different local lenses and mindsets. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in East Asian/Chinese Studies and a Master’s degree in African Studies. Originally from Germany, she has lived abroad for over 6 years – mostly in China, but also in South Korea and Mexico.
Next to her passion for cross-cultural topics, Jana likes to explore all things digital. She is currently working on becoming a user experience designer and divides her time between her UX studies and the CITYMAKERS project.
