To make Dortmund more sustainable, Jan and his team created “Innovation Next Door” together with citizens. The focus? Innovative ideas around urban resilience, low emissions, intelligent mobility solutions, and smart power systems, invented not only by one person alone but by a collective of visionaries.

Jan is convinced that by sharing experiences and insights with others, we can actually move forward and achieve a transition for the greater good.
