Globalisation and urbanisation are major influences in today’s world, impacting many cities on various levels, and Berlin is no exception to this. Berlin has found a way of re-emerging as a strategic urban hotspot for creativity and innovation. However, our city is becoming increasingly aware of the many challenges that come with this newfound momentum.

The Opportunity

We believe that the future of Berlin can be shaped positively by the resourcefulness of the people who live here and call Berlin home. Futureminded Group proactively seeks to collaborate in creating innovative solutions to the challenges our city faces now and in the future.

Connecting people to create change.

In our projects we seek to collaborate with like-minded people to make a difference locally and globally.

For the past seven years, a group of runners from various sectors of society has endeavoured to be part of breaking the cycle of poverty by running for clean water at the annual Berliner Wasserbetriebe relay race.

The runners are supported by friends, family and colleagues who sponsor them. The funds go towards charity: water, an innovative non-profit organisation bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. Since 2011, the annual run has raised $76,781 (€64,180) serving 2,558 people in rural communities. All contributions to this year's fundraising that ends on June 7, 2018 will go towards a sustainable clean water project for a whole community.
