Michael Gleich is a journalist, publicist, presenter and the director of the Culture Counts Foundation. He has been reporting from the world's crisis regions and war-torn areas for 15 years now. In the process he has come to know the invaluable work done by peacebuilders from civil society, and this has led to the idea of bringing together outstanding individuals and organisations in a summit meeting, in order to provide support for their commitment and promote international networking.
Tina Gadow is a theatre expert, presenter and specialist in producing events which encourage active participant involvement. She is fascinated by cultural diversity, and focuses on the question of how this can constructively be put into practice. Her role in the summit is to design its formats and draw up the agenda; she will also present the event.
Media specialist and journalist Maja Tittlbach has for years now devoted her work to the themes of environment, sustainability and peace. As project assistant she is responsible for the event's logistics, and for providing support in project management and communication. In this capacity she will help the peacebuilders to find their way to Paretz and Berlin. Whichever questions arise, Maja always has the answer.
