My trip to the countryside of Brandenburg was accompanied by Lucas, my supervisor, and Mitch, a member of the Munich hub. We left Berlin to reach a house, totally lost in nature and surrounded only by silence. When we arrived, it was already late, but we spent some time together with other members and started writing down a list of the main topics we would like to discuss the next day.
The second day was the busiest one. We woke up in the early morning and had breakfast together that someone was kind enough to prepare. While we were drinking coffee, my shy gaze crossed with that of others - I was very curious about how the meeting would take place.
Due to the warm weather, we decided to start outside in the garden. First, we talked about how the pandemic decreased the interest of members of some hubs, mainly due to the overwhelming difficulty of organizing events in the last two years. The next topic was related to how to use and improve visibility through social media channels. I had talked about this with Franze, who manages the Love Foundation Berlin Instagram profile, before, so I was able to get to know some of the ideas and challenges that had come up over recent years.
