    Jeffrey Parks – On saving his community with inspiration from the Ruhr Valley, Germany

    Jeffrey Parks – On saving his community with inspiration from the Ruhr Valley, Germany

    Jeffrey Parks, an attorney and social entrepreneur from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, was shocked by the effects of de-industrialisation on his community after the closure of the famous Bethlehem Steel works. He found a solution on a trip to Germany’s Ruhr Valley, an area that had suffered similar problems after the closure of its coal mines and steel plants. He discovered that many of the abandoned industrial sites such as Zeche Zollverein in Essen had since been turned into thriving cultural centers and, in some cases, UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Germans were celebrating the old industrial heritage while using the spaces for museums, concerts and other events – a discovery that changed his life forever. The idea for SteelStacks, a vibrant cultural centre, was born. Host Shelby Stanger talks to Jeffrey Parks about the importance of arts and culture for community life. Includes travel tips for the Ruhr Valley and a guide on which food and drink to try in Germany.

    On football, Cuba and founding a clean drinking water charity

    Benjamin Adrion, the son of a German football coach, started pursuing a professional career in football at an early age and ended up playing in midfield for FC St. Pauli in Hamburg, Germany, a club that is famous for its die-hard supporters and social conscience.

Upon his return to Germany, the plan for a clean drinking water charity began to take shape, and “Viva con Agua de St. Pauli” was born with the support of his club. Soon after, Benjamin quit his football career to develop the project full-time.
    More than a decade later, Viva con Agua continues to raise money for clean water and builds wells all over the world, amongst other things.
