maybe cheesy, but hey, one man’s cheese is another’s caviar. but the point is right, change is always happening, and what we do will influence the way the changes go.
i may have posted this video a while back, if you’re short on time you can check out the trailer. the green movement needs more influencers! transforming into a sustainable future will also need a shift in the culture that surrounds us, it needs to become part of that which produces meaning among our society.
on october 7, the influencer conference is coming to berlin (fb event). the conference took place for the first time in new york last year and “seeks to identify, understand and support influencer culture globally.” this year, it is also happening in berlin and london and i’m very happy to be part of this conference, since it looks like it’s exactly down my alley! the overarching theme for berlin is ‘reaching new audiences’ and the sessions are called: changing to green, making contributions and rebranding the arts. the ‘new by deconstruction’ workshop also looks exciting.
the conference venue is in west berlin, smack down in the ‘city’ – where you can really feel the difference to east berlin. the place is called ’bikini berlin’ and it’s directly at breitscheidplatz where we did the silent climate parade last weekend.
looking forward to engaging conversations with inspiring people next week!
very interesting conversation on social media, national identity, and culture. unfortunately, i missed this event at social media week berlin, but if this project/conversation continues, i’d like to be a part. after all, this is perhaps why a lot of third culture kids (who usually have a very avantgarde attitude towards national identity) are fascinated by the possibilities of social media.
