Brink

 

 

 

 

Kristian Brink (Copenhagen, 1992) is a business developer based in Leipzig, where he has been working at nextbike in its international expansion since April 2016. Before joining the German bike share company, Kristian served at the UN-Habitat in its Cairo Office branch. The rapid urbanisation of Egypt has its main setting in the Egyptian capital, a 14 kilometer wide strip of fertile land that embraces almost 50,000 inhabitants per square kilometer. Kristian will explain the challenges, lessons-learned, and success stories of one exciting year counselling the local city authorities about how to take back control of a galopant informal housing expansion, improve the water management system, and to offer new mobility solutions for the Cairenes. Furthermore, the story-telling will provide with a stimulating overview of the socio-political situation in Egypt in the past few years, both internally and externally throughout the region, and how the use of its Pharaonic past by subsequent regimes has sometimes back-fired in the pursuit of a soft power that could promote the country’s delicate economy. All these conclusions will be addressed by Kristian through his experiences at the UN-Habitat intertwined with fun anecdotes of culture clashes of a European expat living in the city of the thousand minarets.
