Anette Jensen: THF.Vision – Reallabor für eine gute Zukunft auf dem Tempelhofer Flughafen
THF.Vision setzt sich dafür ein, den Tempelhofer Flughafen zu einem Experimentier-, Forschungs- und Bildungsort zu machen, an dem sich sehr viele beteiligen. Anfangen wollen wir mit einem Ernährungshof: Im Gebäude gibt es fünf Küchen und mehrere Kantinenraeme mit Zugang zu einem grünen Innenhof.
Keine andere Metropole hat eine solche Möglichkeit: 300.000 Quadratmeter Platz mitten in der Stadt. Zugleich ist das Gebäude hochsymbolisch. Errichtet in der Nazizeit wurde es nach dem Krieg zum Ort der Rettung der Westberliner*innen durch die ehemaligen Feinde. Jetzt könnte hier ein menschen- und umweltfreundlicher Ort entstehen – demokratisch entwickelt und offen für alle.
Silke Zimmermann: Planet A in 2050
Let’s imagine we are in the year 2050 and everything went well: we keep the 1,5 degree limit and we live in a society with net zero emissions globally. Our lifestyle fits into planetary boundaries. What does our world look like? I use current data, facts and statistics to point out planetary problem zones as well as opportunities for transformation. This positive vision will become the final chapter of my book on how I quit my bullshit job to find the good life for all creatures while travelling through alternative projects like permaculture, reforestation, a utopian township in India, Hambach forest etc. There is not Plan B, so let’s take care of Planet A!

Kave Bulambo: The lived realities of Congolese women in coffee and cacao…
Congolese women make the largest share of workers on coffee and cacao plantations yet the returns they get is impossible to live on. In this presentation we give you a chance to see and feel the hard work and passion they put into producing your coffee and cacao and challenges they currently and will continue to have unless we unite in their support. You will also get a chance to taste or take home a some chocolate or coffee.
As a woman living now in both world where I get to enjoy coffee and chocolate every single day then faced with the poverty and imbalance of the industry when I visit the Congo- I realized that I can’t keep quiet.
Xiaoyu Cheng (Angela): ME & WE
1+1 > 2! ME & WE is all about bringing “ME” together into “WE”. By sharing food and stories, we bond over the flavors that touch our soul; we understand and embrace each other. Together, we are stronger and happier! Come and know more about our approach to immersive reality and sustainability!
1) It is an instantaneous immersive technique with aesthetic result. Best perceived as yoga-for-the-mind with x3 simple tools and no particular pre required training or warm up but ultimately best with a guide or in group:
2) Direction to start: one chop-stick provided with made up fabric disc preferably velvety and a handful of beans, seeds or lentils…and go.
3) Frequenseed is made of two words: Frequency and seed(s) plural combined to simplify the experience. If alone it is best to practice early in morning but not exclusively – Its references is rooted to the sand meditation practice by the Himalayan’s Monk but readapted for a city life. The activity helps the person to create a map of their own state of reality – it immerges the person to contemplate their own speed of thought and enjoy their own exclusive state of existence or construct a unique experience from your inside out. than decide either to take it home, take a picture or wipe it all off.
19:00 Workshop: Designing New Spaces for Sustainability in Berlin
Using Edward de Bono’s “Six-Thinking-Hats” technique, we will set out to explore the following question: “Which places and spaces can we design in Berlin to ignite a more embodied experience of sustainability in people’s everyday lives?” No previous knowledge of the subject matter is required. By the end of this 90-minute session, the group will have collected a pool of ideas that attendees are welcome to take home and transform into actionable initiatives. The workshop will be held primarily in English to accommodate an international audience. Participants may also ask questions/give input in German, which the workshop facilitator will be happy to translate for the group.
