A Day in the Life: Philipp von der Wippel
Incubating Change in Europe
Philipp von der Wippel discovered his love for community engagement as a high schooler in Munich. He realized early that powerful things could happen if young people were involved in finding solutions to pressing issues—they just needed the right tools to help them get started.
Philipp is one of the hundreds of emerging leaders from across Europe who will join President Obama for a town hall about the future of the region, so we spent a day with him to get a closer look at his work at the nonprofit he founded, ProjectTogether, and the journey that led him to create it.
