How to found an organization?
Originally I am from Serbia, Novi Sad, and at the moment I am studying Environmental Sciences in Lüneburg, Germany. I was participant of the Theodor-Heuss-Kolleg in 2010/11, a programme of Robert-Bosch-Stiftung, where I got a chance to develop and implement an own project on the Balkans. This inspired me to keep active and since 2014 I am part of the Theodor-Heuss-Kollege’s partner organization “Balkans, let’s get up! (BLGU)” and facilitator of MitOst e.V. Two years ago I became a member of the Core Team of the BLGU. Besides taking part in decisions for the further development of the organization I am responsible for finances.
Born and grown up in Duisburg (Germany), Linnéa lives today in Berlin. She studied History, French and Intercultural Studies in Paderborn, Halle an der Saale and Toulouse (France). As participant of a German-Russian program, she discovered her passion to work in intercultural programs with young people and started to get engaged as trainer in the German-French youth exchange. Since two and half years she is working in MitOst as program officer and facilitator in Theodor-Heuss-Kolleg, an international NGO based in Berlin. In this frame she founded the program RuhrstadtTRÄUMER, which aims to empower young people from the area of Ruhr to get involved as active citizens. Passionate fundraising means for her a basis to enable great things to happen and supporting that crazy ideas can be realized.
PR and campaign management

Since two years I work for MitOst association in Berlin, where I support administration and communication of the project Dialogue for Change which includes eight non-formal educational programs in Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and Moldova.
