You are welcome to read our last exchange Program report of Nadine Kölmel from GWG München.

From 13th-17th of April 2015 Nadine Kölmel from GWG München visited Poplar Harca in London with the goal to get some new incentives for the communications department in general and for the organization of events in particular.

“I went to London to see how they do communications. And the Exchange with Poplar Harca exceeded all my expectations. The whole team welcomed me very friendly and was eager to give me insights into their everyday work, starting from residents’ involvement over marketing issues up to environmental projects. I have learned a lot about how to engage residents in the organization of festivals as well as in environmental and social activities and got some new ideas for our PR.”

However, this wasn’t the only learning effect: “Last but not least, I could expand my horizons by learning a bit about the English housing culture and compare the social housing situation in London with the one in Munich.”
