Description:

In September 2015, thousands of refugees arrived in Munich. An alliance of multiple organizations and political parties stood together to give those a voice who had just left everything behind. Greta Vorwerk will talk about the challenges the young alliance was facing and the projects they were accomplishing.

Greta Vorwerg was committed to start the dialogue between refugees and the local politicians during the events of fall 2015 in Munich. At that time she studied geography at the university of Munich (LMU) and now works for a company that provides sustainable mobility solutions in Europe.
