Who – The people behind GlobaLokal

Members of the GlobaLokal cohousing group

In addition to their experiences integrating into foreign cultures, either in Germany or elsewhere, the members of GlobaLokal have a wide range of skills, providing a solid foundation for our project activities. This means, as a whole, the group:

  • Speaks multiple languages
  • Has multifaceted expertise and knowledge gained in both professional and personal contexts
  • Is demographically diverse in terms of age and culture
  • Is knowledgeable about the city of Frankfurt and the Rhine-Main region

The group believes in making use of the synergies that result from diversity and enjoying the benefits that come from being a socially committed cohousing community.

We joined GlobaLokal because …

“… we’re at home all around the globe and want to share the feeling.”

Both aspects of GlobaLokal, the cohousing and the social engagement, make it possible to have many enriching intercultural encounters in Frankfurt.”
