This week’s Fellow Focus introduces Grace Levin from the US and Friedrich Paulsen from Germany. Grace works as a community organizer in the city of Austin, Texas and Friedrich is the political representative for the German Saving Banks Association in Berlin. Hear why they think cities are important for transatlantic relationships and why that gives them hope.
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. Find last week’s Fellow Focus about Francesca Weber-Newth and Richard Lawrence Jr. here. To catch the other videos and learn about our fellows, follow this space here, or @AHG_Berlin, @DPZ_Berlin and @ppi on Twitter.
New Urban Progress is the joint metro initiative of Das Progressive Zentrum, Alfred 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).
