richard wilkinson has some great data to show that inequality in a society is related to virtually all measures of social dysfunction, not just a few things. in more equal societies, this has not only positive effects for those on the lower end, but also for the more privileged ones.

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!
