Increase Your Awareness

Reconnect to yourself, people, and the environment

3 training days | Not residential  | Germany

Open for Registration
Increase Your Awareness | Germany


Being a social pioneer, civil society leader, activist or development enthusiast means dealing with yourself, people, and an environment. Civil society is not a technical space. It's not only about operational excellence. Awareness and self-reflection are as crucial for your engagement in civil society. During this 3-day workshop in an outdoor-setting, we will put you in your stretch zone and get you out of your daily routine. 

  • You will learn different constructs and concepts (i.e. emotional intelligence) of analysing awareness, empathy and responsibility

  • You will reflect on your own awareness through adventure activities

  • You will gain new attitudes and transfer these to your civil society engagement
