MONTH #1 - July

Local Projects & Personal Sustainability

19:30 - 21:00 Panke Culture | Outdoor Area (Hof V, Gerichtstraße 23, 13347 Berlin)

Project Presentations: Personal Sustainability

Join us for a series of short project presentations by a string of social, ecological and cultural local projects.

Each speaker will share their project’s current state, learnings, needs, resources and strategies. Following the month's focus theme, we asked them to reflect on “personal sustainability” within their projects: Where are they at personally? What did they learn from the pandemic about personal sustainability? How can we step up our personal actions to combat climate change and accelerate positive transformation?

  • SuperCoop - Better Together: Why community entrepreneurship is important for sustainability.
  • Vagabund Brauerei - Sessionable Crisis Healing: The brewery's journey through the pandemic and personal crisis.
  • Bits & Bäume Berlin - Why we need sustainable digitization.
  • Baumhaus Berlin - Why we need volunteers to be present.


We’ll gather in Panke Culture’s outdoor space (the same address as Baumhaus, but in the back building). The setting is open and informal (no power point). We’re looking forward to reconnecting, reflecting on and sharing our experiences and strategies after a long pause of events. If you have trouble finding us, call Karen: 0176-7856-6593.

Teach-In: Dynamic Balance and the Inner Commons

The Inner Commons is an intuitively understandable, flexible and contextual framework that can be used to catalyze a process of self understanding and resolving common issues we all deal with.

The concepts discussed in this workshop are based on simple, root level, universal experiences of the human condition and common sense. Because of this, insights that participants gain about themselves can provide insights to understanding and resolving issues with others as well. If you have trouble finding us, call Karen: 0176-7856-6593.

Teach-In: Cultivate Your Resilience

Learn how to navigate life's changes and challenges!

The last year has shown us that life is unpredictable and can change quickly and dramatically. Unexpected and undesired changes can feel very uncomfortable and sometimes be painful.

What if you learned how to get through difficulties and uncertainties with more confidence and inner strength? To bounce back from these unexpected changes more rapidly?

In this workshop, we will have the opportunity to:

  • Discover the 7 pillars of resilience

  • Learn simple and effective tools to develop your resilience on a daily basis

  • Ask questions and discuss the topic
If you have trouble finding us, call Karen: 0176-7856-6593.

Campfire Stories: Special Guest: Amy Phillips, Grrl Gang Berlin

During lockdown Amy was able to dedicate some of her personal time to launching her own community project, "Grrl Gang Berlin". Telling the stories of the womxn and non-binary folks who had supported her own personal development and growth intending to uplift those people, their projects and connect them with each other. This experience opened her eyes to a new purpose with which to apply her digital marketing skills.

In this sharing session, Amy shares perspectives on how the pandemic helped her accelerate positive transformation on a personal level, on a professional level and on a wider community level in Berlin. This is an opportunity to get to know her, she will gladly answer questions about her process and journey.

Circle members will also be invited to share their experiences in these areas in the hopes that we can inspire and learn from each other. There will be prompts and a mix of short personal and group exercises to create space for reflection and promote a dialogue between attendees. As this is a safe space, everyone is invited to participate however they wish - come join the conversation or simply sit with us and listen. If you have trouble finding us, call Karen: 0176-7856-6593.

19:30 - 21:00 Panke Culture | Outdoor Area (Hof V, Gerichtstraße 23, 13347 Berlin)

Teach-In: Learn How to Test Your Local Soil & Be Part of a Collective Berlin Mapping Experience

We are training volunteer Citizen Scientists who are keen to learn and help.

Soil analysis is necessary to design a regenerative edible landscape. Healthy soil is the basis for a healthy community, healthy people and a healthy environment.

Everybody is welcome to join without limits of age, sex, gender, cultural background and personal choices. No prior knowledge of the subject is needed. This workshop is part of a six-month soil workshop series (read more in the about section of the Eventbrite event). Our goal is to take the number of data points on the map to 100 by August!

Open Soil Atlas is a pilot project, launched in March 2021 and organised by the Feld Food Forest community. Funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, it is an open-source co-learning centre for Berlin citizens.

If you have trouble finding us, call Karen: 0176-7856-6593.

Campfire Stories: Campfire Stories: Special Guest José Luis Vicente Vicente (PhD) from ZALF

Being an environmental scientist in times of a collapsing planet is not easy. The planetary crisis we are facing is getting worse much faster than the normal timing of the scientific works. Our planet is already collapsing and we do not have so much time to avoid the worst scenarios and, therefore, urgent radical solutions are needed.

In this Campfire Story, environmental scientist José Luis Vicente will tell us how he sees this unprecedented crisis, what solutions are already being implemented, which of them are really working, which are just greenwashing or counterproductive, and what solutions should be implemented as soon as possible.

If you have trouble finding us, call Karen: 0176-7856-6593.

Teach In: How to Kiezblock / Wandering Livable Streetspace

How can we take action to transform our streets? Learn about Wandering Liveable Streetspace (WLS) & Kiezblock, a campaign by Changing Cities e.V.

While there are already over 50 local Kidzblock-initiatives in Berlin, the project WLS is still in its early stages. WLS-Co-Initiator Kai Siefke explains how it all started:

In August 2020, my wife, Katja, and I began to develop an idea further that first came to us in 2008. The original concept was similar to superblocks in Barcelona and Ottensen macht Platz in Hamburg, but we adapted to the current situation in Berlin. The basic idea is to remove parked cars in a street for a period of four weeks or longer and convert the street into a green space for people to meet. In doing so, we step away from always thinking of street space in the dimensions of a car. We then re-envision the street into a space that takes on a new life of its own; a space that people can design to match the needs of their everyday life.

Afterwards, the neighbourhood can decide whether they want to try to keep it as a permanent solution or revert it back into a regular street. After the four week period is up, we would then move on to the next street to give as many people as possible the opportunity to experience it. This would also allow us to understand what works in a certain space and what doesn’t before undertaking any permanent reconstruction.

At the moment, we are trying to get funding for a pilot module. A motion with a similar proposal has already been submitted to Pankow's district council. However, nothing will be decided before the elections in September.

Project Presentations: Personal Sustainability

Join us for a series of short project presentations by a string of social, ecological and cultural local projects.

Each speaker will share their project’s current state, learnings, needs, resources and strategies. Following the month's focus theme, we asked them to reflect on “personal sustainability” within their projects: Where are they at personally? What did they learn from the pandemic about personal sustainability? How can we step up our personal actions to combat climate change and accelerate positive transformation?

  • SuperCoop - Better Together: Why community entrepreneurship is important for sustainability.
  • Vagabund Brauerei - Sessionable Crisis Healing: The brewery's journey through the pandemic and personal crisis.
  • Bits & Bäume Berlin - Why we need sustainable digitization.
  • Baumhaus Berlin - Why we need volunteers to be present.


We’ll gather in Panke Culture’s outdoor space (the same address as Baumhaus, but in the back building). The setting is open and informal (no power point). We’re looking forward to reconnecting, reflecting on and sharing our experiences and strategies after a long pause of events. If you have trouble finding us, call Karen: 0176-7856-6593.

Teach-In: Dynamic Balance and the Inner Commons

The Inner Commons is an intuitively understandable, flexible and contextual framework that can be used to catalyze a process of self understanding and resolving common issues we all deal with.

The concepts discussed in this workshop are based on simple, root level, universal experiences of the human condition and common sense. Because of this, insights that participants gain about themselves can provide insights to understanding and resolving issues with others as well. If you have trouble finding us, call Karen: 0176-7856-6593.

Teach-In: Cultivate Your Resilience

Learn how to navigate life's changes and challenges!

The last year has shown us that life is unpredictable and can change quickly and dramatically. Unexpected and undesired changes can feel very uncomfortable and sometimes be painful.

What if you learned how to get through difficulties and uncertainties with more confidence and inner strength? To bounce back from these unexpected changes more rapidly?

In this workshop, we will have the opportunity to:

  • Discover the 7 pillars of resilience

  • Learn simple and effective tools to develop your resilience on a daily basis

  • Ask questions and discuss the topic
If you have trouble finding us, call Karen: 0176-7856-6593.

Campfire Stories: Special Guest: Amy Phillips, Grrl Gang Berlin

During lockdown Amy was able to dedicate some of her personal time to launching her own community project, "Grrl Gang Berlin". Telling the stories of the womxn and non-binary folks who had supported her own personal development and growth intending to uplift those people, their projects and connect them with each other. This experience opened her eyes to a new purpose with which to apply her digital marketing skills.

In this sharing session, Amy shares perspectives on how the pandemic helped her accelerate positive transformation on a personal level, on a professional level and on a wider community level in Berlin. This is an opportunity to get to know her, she will gladly answer questions about her process and journey.

Circle members will also be invited to share their experiences in these areas in the hopes that we can inspire and learn from each other. There will be prompts and a mix of short personal and group exercises to create space for reflection and promote a dialogue between attendees. As this is a safe space, everyone is invited to participate however they wish - come join the conversation or simply sit with us and listen. If you have trouble finding us, call Karen: 0176-7856-6593.
