Communications Director, 1. FC Union Berlin

“The symposium jointly organized by the WFEB and 1. FC Union Berlin brings interesting conversational partners together to discuss the overlaps of sports and society as well as the economy, in particular. The challenges related to ethical and sustainable action are greater than ever and require permanent reflection and consideration. This event can set an important impulse and provide plenty of food for thought – two partners have come together here that both firmly understand the importance of acting in a socially responsible and considerate manner.”

Christian Arbeit was born in Berlin in February of 1974 and has remained faithful to his home city to this very day. The 41-year-old is a graduate social pedagogue and worked in the cinema industry up to the end of 2008.
