"Community is not something that just exists by itself, it's something that needs to be built." In this week's episode, Lei interviews Malte Bedürftig, the founder of GoVolunteer, to discuss the platform he created for volunteers and organizers of volunteer projects across Germany. Malte had a normal job, and a year ago he took an indefinite leave from his job to start GoVolunteer, which at the beginning was nothing but a group of young people who wanted to do something for the society. Now GoVolunteer has become a well-known social platform in Germany with support from local communities, and plays an important role in integrating nearly one million refugees who arrived in Germany last year.
