Stories From Future


Astrid Nierhoff

"Stories from the Future. Confronting the Climate Crisis with Storytelling and New Narratives".

To face the future, we need perspectives. These are created and shaped in the here and now. What view do we take of the future in the context of the climate crisis? What attitudes do we derive from it? Which stories want to be (re)told?

The idea is to reflect together on structures of stories / narratives around the climate crisis that you encounter and develop your own future narratives. Maybe this will even result in stories that we would like to contribute to the current EU-funded project www.storiesfrom2050.com!

Dialogue Room #1


Stephanie Bachmair

In the age of filter bubbles, we open a space for debate! The aim is to shed light on current topics from different perspectives, to build mutual understanding and a deeper awareness of the respective topics and different opinions about them. Hosts of the space for debates are trained Deep Democracy process facilitators.

Deep Democracy Facilitation:
Arnold Mindell developed the Deep Democracy approach in the late 1980s. Since then, numerous process facilitators have been using this method in political crisis areas as well as in Western organizational settings. Process work or Deep Democracy is both a model and a method and, in addition to linear logical argumentation, also gives space to the non-linear emotional aspects in relationship work. The Deep Democracy approach supports entering into dialogue.Besides the voices of the mainstream, the disagreeable voices also have their say. When mutual understanding is deepened in this way, not only can awareness of a particular issue be raised, but transformation and change can be brought about.

Charisma in Clouds


Hajo Winkler

One year after the start of the pandemic, we can no longer claim that 'it's just better live'. Whether in film, audio book or online training: storytellers adapt to the medium.  

Our stories are powerful: but what remains when they sound like platform announcements? Our body language is convincing live, but how believable are we when our notebook makes us look like zombies?  

Concrete tips and experiences help us get dramatically more out of our charisma with a few tweaks and ideas - even in the cloud.

Hi Tech, Lo Tech and No-Tec.
