How we shape the city of Herten with education

Svenja Hövelmann wants to encourage people to take action in shaping the future of their own cities. As a planner she wittnessed closing mines and cities becoming deserted, which is the reason she is in charge of the „Herten – Neustart Innenstadt“ (Herten – City Restart) project, believing that cities can revive, if experts as well as laymen are included. She explains, why Education plays a major part in it.
