IDEA

Imagine a place, an informal and inspiring atmosphere, where you can meet other enthusiastic, like-minded people committed to making Berlin and the world a better place, to work for social & ecologic change in their neighborhood and city and for sustainable urban lifestyles…

Emergent Berlin is a self-organized non-commercial two-day event to inform, network, exchange, collaborate, celebrate and have fun with each other in the spirit of becoming active participants in the quest to make Berlin a better place. Emergent Berlin focuses on local projects and finding ways to connect people who are already working for a more sustainable city with those who are interested in participating in, collaborating with and supporting those initiatives.

Our P.E.A.C.E.S. framework – Emergent Berlin is a festival to connect various dimensions of local sustainable development

Local sustainable development is about a deep change of the way we live. At it’s core Sustainability is about the ability to maintain balance, and balance is a dynamic activity.  It’s an open process, it encompasses all areas and we need different perspectives and approaches to support and catalyze sustainable development. The festival focusses on exploring at least 6 dimensions of sustainable development: personal, ecologic, aesthetic, cultural, economic and social (our “P.E.A.C.E.S.” framework):

PERSONAL Who am I, where am I at in my life, where do I want to be and how do I get there? How do we find balance in our personal lives?
ECOLOGICAL Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Responsibility, how can we live in balance with the ecosystem that supports life on the planet?
AESTHETIC Understanding and being in touch with the many ways it’s possible to sense the world (seeing, touching, smelling, hearing, tasting, intuition +)
CULTURAL How do we appreciate and learn from our differences but also focus on what we have in common?
ECONOMIC How can we create and maintain more balanced systems of organizing ourselves to live humanely together?
SOCIAL How can we learn to communicate with each other so that we can truly understand each other and work collaboratively to support each other?
