Fellow Focus: Francesca and Richard

The twenty New Urban Progress Fellows work on both sides of the Atlantic on a wide variety issues, from housing to the influence of climate change on cities. 

This week’s ‘Fellow Focus’ is on Francesca Weber-Newth from the Tempelhof Projekt in Berlin and Richard Lawrence Jr., Principal Planner for the City of Alexandria, Virginia. In the video below, they introduce themselves and explain why they are passionate about cities and their role in transatlantic relations. 

Each Monday until the end of the year, we will be showcasing two of our fellows from the United States and Germany with a short video. Follow this space here or @AHG_Berlin, @DPZ_Berlin and @ppi on Twitter to catch all ten videos and learn about our fellows. 

New Urban Progress is the joint metro initiative of Das Progressive ZentrumAlfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft and the Progressive Policy Institute.

The project is supported by the Transatlantic Program of the Federal Republic of Germany and funded by the European Recovery Program (ERP) of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi).
