On January 26th 2019 a new round of the Changemaker Journey will start.
The Journey will be in German language. Two in person workshops will take place at EUTOPIA co-working in Thomas-Mann-Straße 36, Bonn on January 26th (Saturday afternoon) and in week 6 of the program. The other sessions will be bi-weekly online via zoom for joint relfections, and bi-weekly peer-mentoring sessions. Your personal process and relfections will be accompanied by the workbook we created for you, guiding you additionally though the journey.
“How can we not just passively experience change but actively shape it?” This question is at the core of the new round of the Changemaker Journey, shedding a light upon the possible connections between what inspires us or excites us internally and what we see and experience in the outside world.
The idea that “change begins with us” will be explored in depth by the participants of the Journey during the following weeks, through collective and individual discussion and reflection upon topics such as “Purpose & excitement”, “Letting go & making decisions”, “Self-organisation & leadership”, “Resilience & saying no”, among others. The design of the 10 week program follows different steps guiding participants towards inner discovery, connection & teaming up for positive change.
The Journey balances between overarching topics, such as developing powerful questions or purpose, and the practice of building of habits, such as reflecting every day on your intention, or the connection between your actions and your (personal or collective) purpose. As one of the former participants expresses it: “The first invitation made by the journey guides was, actually, to stop. To give ourselves a few minutes every day to reflect on it and see what we have done with it, and how we will face the next one. No expectations involved, yet the simple act of being aware of your own time and going through it consciously caused an immediate inner change”.
The program also offers the possibility to experience interactive, reflective & experiential learning, mixing online & offline peer mentoring session. In this occasion, the journey is facilitated by our co-founders and journey guides, Jannik Kaiser and Franziska Kohn.
