Benjamin Scheerbarth is a student of urban planning at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. Upon graduating from high school in Berlin, DE, he spent a year collaborating with South Africa’s Global Development for Peace and Leadership in Cape Town, SA. Here, he was responsible to tailor an existing peace education program to a younger audience. Thereafer, he moved to the UK to study International Management at The University of Manchester. During the four years of the program, he was an exchange student in Copenhagen, DK, Shanghai, CN, and Fukuoka, JP. His focus was on contemporary political theory and sociology, through which, he remains convinced, advances in management thinking and practice might and need to be (re)imagined. At the GSD, he aims to apply this knowledge and international exposure to the realms of urban planning and design. Outside the classroom, he loves exploring new places, mountaineering, and listening to electronic music.
