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.


We believe that the future of Berlin can be shaped positively by the resourcefulness of the people who live here and call Berlin their home. Futureminded Group proactively seeks to support a collaborative innovation approach to the challenges our city faces now and in the future.

Connecting people to create change.

In our projects we connect people to make a difference together in their organisations, in the city of Berlin and beyond.

For the last six 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 $61,524 (€55,812) serving 2,050 people in rural Ethiopian and Nepalese communities. The funds raised this year on the 3rd of June 2016 will again go towards a sustainable clean water project for a whole community.
