The first part of the sociocultural exchange “Urban Territories Human Cities” organized by the Ensurecer Foundation starts today in Berlin. The purpose of this initiative is to analyze different experiences of living cities that can be incorporated into our daily lives. Planned activities range from interactive workshops, to visits to existing initiatives, discussions with local municipalities or the acquisition of methodologies for the revitalization of public spaces from a local perspective.
In the context of this proyect, Ensurecer Foundation has awarded three scholarships giving priority to those profiles that could provide an enriching vision to the group. Among the scholarship holders are:
Montserrat León, Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Sciences and expert in community health. She is also co-founder of “Global Health Next Generation Network” where she coordinates the Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship team.

She is part of a think-tank devoted to the role of social control over public policies and has experience in the development of citizen participation projects in the municipality of Sao Paulo.
Thanks to this scholarship they will be able to develop their competencies in the field of sustainability, urban planning, collective and participatory mappings, self management in cities and using of new technologies for development. Also, the participants will discover alternative initiatives in Berlin and Barcelona at the same time as they will share their experiences with an international team of future world and city changers.
Upon completion the 23 participants will be accredited with a diploma certifying their participation, which will be validated by the European Commission (Youthpass) and the two firms (CAD and HochDrei) organizing the workshop.
