The Future Can Be Better Than We Think.

We are calling for proposals. Deadline: April 18, 2021.

We are looking for enthusiastic facilitators who want to enrich our annual gathering with their unique contribution. If you want to offer a 1 ½ hours virtual or in-person workshop, be inspired by our theme of the BCD21:

The Future Can Be Better Than We Think

Here are the four premises that will guide us:

  • We always do have different options to act, thus offering opportunities for shaping  the future. 
  • We are not alone, the future will happen on a global scale, and we can find like minded souls to join hands. 
  • We can connect with each other, considering more diverse ideas to tackle challenges. 
  • We can actively embrace transformation in organisations and society as a chance to make the future better. 

The Berlin Change Days 2021 will be organised around four aspects of “future”:

  • The future of activism: how will individuals be able to initiate change in organisations and society, on a local and a global scale. How can they be supported by forces from within the system in which they operate?
  • Transformation & change: In 2020, we saw a lot of emerging changes in leadership and collaboration? Will this unpredictable dynamic of transformation become the norm or can change agents put their hands back to the steering wheel?
  • Connecting again: after such a long time of physical separation - and many new opportunities to connect online - how can we make sure that people who want to make a change are not separated from each other?
  • Global responsibility: What do we need to do to make a difference to where our planet, and global societies are heading?

At the time when we post this message, we don’t know what will be the situation regarding the Covid pandemics at the scheduled date in November. We believe firmly that there will be a possibility to meet in person. We are planning to host the Berlin Change Days 2021 in the form of a hybrid meeting with opportunities to gather in Berlin but also to follow some parts of the program online. We might start with some online events even before. How exactly all this will happen will emerge over the months to come. That is why you cannot register at this time but as soon as the options become obvious.

Berlin Change Days 2021:
November 5-7, 2021
