Meet the amazing people that have been working to organize and plan an unforgettable conference. 


Composed of the two co-chairs, Jonathan Njus (W.K. Kellogg Foundation) and Romy Krämer (Guerrilla Foundation), together with movement representative Tatiana Garavito, the Steering circle's mandate is to operationalise and implement the conference planning. 


They work in strict collaboration with the Local Advisory Committee, the Conference Planning Committee, as well as the EDGE Team. 


We are really glad to present this year’s Conference Planning Committee, composed of both funders and movement representatives.

  • China Ching | Christensen Fund

  • Jonathan McPhedran Waitzer | Resource Movement 

  • Kinga Wisniewska | FRIDA, The Young Feminist Fund

  • Mai Abu ElDahab | Mophradat 


  • Matthias Fiedler | Bewegungsstiftung

  • Muhammed Lamin Saidykhan | Africans Rising 

  • Renata Boulos | INCIDE

  • William Cordery | Wellspring Philanthropic Fund


We aim that the experience of German and Berlin based social movements, particularly strong and dynamic in building systemic alternatives, will be deeply woven in the conference design. To this end, a local advisory committee (LAC) will be set up, composed of representatives of local partners involved in building systemic alternatives and challenging power and exploitation in Berlin and Germany.

The main purpose of the committee is to showcase the local experience towards the international conference committee through community visits and other local activities.
