We will meet once per month to playfully explore different topics which are relevant for anyone who is working in the field of social innovation.
It is time for collective wisdom! With this intention, Unity Effect is organizing a Meet-Up series, starting on the 6th of March. The purpose is to share and collect experiences, learnings and inspirations around different topics including self-organization, new leadership, new team cultures & values and social innovation, among others.
Our first Meet-Up will take place on the 6th of March (Wednesday, 18:30-20:30) at the Social Impact Lab Bonn (Heinemannstr. 34, 53175, Bonn), the co-hosts for our event. The topic for the evening will be: “Self-organization in teams: Experiences with new ways of working.”
What does it mean or could it mean to work in a self-organized team? How can we create environments of trust and well-being, in which there is space for collaboration, innovation and collective intelligence? These are some of the questions that we have addressed as a team at Unity Effect, and we would love to share our experiences and learn from yours.
In this first Meet-up, we will play with the World Cafe method to discuss and share some of the approaches, tools and mindsets that offer alternatives to traditional organizational structures and ways of working, as well as the challenges that might appear on the way to self-organization.
We will provide some input for the discussion and playfully share with you some of our ideas and methods, yet the outcome will be product of our joint action, thinking and experience. And of course we will also have the opportunity to connect with others in the field.
