Are you driven to make a difference?
The Changemaker Journey is a personal and leadership development program for social entrepreneurs, innovators, students and young* leaders. It empowers changemakers to develop the inner capacities we need to co-create change as authentic leaders and innovators.
*we believe that young is a matter of mindset and not of age
The program brings together cutting edge frameworks & practice from systems thinking, Theory U, complexity science, character development, design thinking, storytelling, the Teal movement, collective leadership & more. Over 10 weeks we create a supportive online and offline group environment where we focus on providing experiential learning and guiding reflective group processes that go beyond a typical online course.
The journey path
The flow of the ten weeks builds on our belief that if we want to create real change towards a more sustainable, equitable and thriving future, we need to shift our understanding of what’s important to us and act on it. For this to work we have to start with ourselves and get clear about what really matters to us, then team up with others who share our values, and then go out and starting taking action, reflecting and iterating.
Where does the journey head?
The Changemaker Journey aims to empower authentic leaders who:
- have high levels of awareness of themselves & how they relate to and impact others and their environments
- Have inner clarity about their personal values and integrity
- have the ability to develop and build habits and environments that support themselves and others
- Have practical tools to organise and lead healthy and agile teams and guide group decision-making processes
- Are resilient and able to take action in uncertain or challenging situations
We believe in the power of young people to co-create and lead innovative, sustainable solutions to our current global challenges. We believe that change is possible and that it starts with us.

What our participants say
‘What I learned most out of the Unity Effect journey is this extraordinary beauty of reflecting myself in different situations in my personal life and also in my working life. We talked about and experienced listening, resilience, intuition and then always asked ourselves: How do I encounter this topics? How do others do it? This really gifted me so that I developed myself and matured a lot during this journey.’
‘The greatest experience for me was to reflect with others about the process and get to know how others tackle things and finally give it a frame to talk about those important things.’
‘10 weeks of a Journey. 10 weeks of inspiring input and profound reflection which are a time for intensive personal development and redirection. We found our way back to our personal values, navigated into the unknown and wandered in the wide space of integrity. For me personally the Journey was more than a personal enrichment in all the aspects that I already mentioned. It was a support in my current life and in challenges of my project.’
“The Changemaker Journey has been for me ten weeks of inspiring workshops, warm-hearted community and a good balance of theory and practice. But mainly it has been a great opportunity to work on the question ‘What do I want to bring to the world?’
The next Changemaker Journey will start January 26th 2019.
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. For embarking on the journey you should be willing to commit to be in the process for about 5h/week. You can directly apply here or contact us via info[@]unityeffect.net if you have further questions.
