UnaVillage Prototype 2019, Germany

UnaVillage Prototype 2019, 

The UnaVillage Prototype 2019 offers motivated people an unique opportunity to learn, work and live together for a defined 4 months period, with a minimum of 2 weeks, between June 20th and October 20th 2019. We will implement and work with and further co-develop concepts such as UnaVersity, New Work-New Culture, Basic Secureness, Common Goods, Social Entrepreneurship among others.

During your stay you spent 50% or your time supporting the basic needs of the prototype community. During the other 50% you try to find out what you really, really like to do and you implement prototypes for that. Each week we have feedback circles and document in a suitable way our learnings and findings (paper, video, Theater, poetry, drawings.....)

For more information please check UnaVillage Prototype 2019

Der UnaVillage Prototype 2019 bietet motivierten Personen eine einzigartige Gelegenheit mit gemeinsamen, zukunftsorientiertem lernen, arbeiten und leben zu experimentieren. Wir werden Erfahrungen mit Konzepten wie UnaVersity, Neue Arbeit-Neue Kultur, Grundsicherung, Gemeinwohl und Sozialunternehmen sammeln und Konzepte weiterentwickeln. 

Während deines Aufenthaltes verbringst Du 50% deiner Zeit die Grundbedürfnisse der Prototype Gemeinschaft zu decken und verbringst die anderen 50% damit herauszufinden, was Du wirklich, wirklich tun möchtest und realisierst entsprechende Prototypen. Wir führen wöchentliche Learning Circles durch und dokumentieren unsere Erkenntnisse in passender Form mit Papier, Videos, Theater, Gedichte, Zeichnungen..)

Vision Lab UnaVillage Oderbruch

Vision Lab UnaVillage Oderbruch

Co-creating the future of the UnaVillage Oderbruch

March 1st to 10th 2019 in Küstriner Vorland, Germany

The objective is to create a comprehensive space plan for the 20 ha locations considering permaculture principles and including concepts for several hundred people working, living and learning together. This includes plans for a new eco village build with natural materials and the restauration of an existing social housing with 160 apartments. The designs should comprise co-working spaces, workshops, fab-lab, craft center, a restaurant and farmers market, community-, learning -, recreation- and leisure places.The first UnaVillage is planned one hour east of Berlin in Germany. Within the Vision Lab we like to co-create together with you resilient and inspiring concepts for the location.

Co-creating the future of the UnaVillage Oderbruch

01.03. - 10.03. 2019 in Küstriner Vorland, Deutschland

Das erste UnaVillage wächst im Oderbruch, eine Stunde östlich von Berlin in Deutschland. Dafür wollen wir eine Vision für die Gestaltung erarbeiten und freuen uns auf vielseitige Unterstützung. Das Ziel ist eine ganzheitliche Raumplanung für das UnaVillage Ökodorf auf circa 20 ha zu entwerfen, Ideen für den ökologischen Umbau von Sozialbauten mit 160 Wohnungen zu visualisieren und die umliegende Gemeinde einzubinden.

UnaVillage Prototype


The center of our activities are the UnaVillage Prototypes. This is an integrated approach, where Project Based and Transformative Learning and individual Learning Journeys come together. The concept is emerging out of a decade of Learning- and Research Journeys. The prototypes aim to experiment sustainable living in a real-life situation, where people build up their villages and work, learn and live together. Transformative Learning and a vivid exchange within the UnaVision network should be an integrated part of the prototypes.

The UnaVillage Prototype offers motivated people an unique opportunity to learn, work and live together for a period of time. The start can be a minimum of 2 weeks stay which then can be extended at a chosen location. In addition to learning about sustainable lifestyles we will implement, work with and further co-develop concepts such as UnaVersity, Sociocracy, New Work-New Culture, Economy of Common Goods and Social Entrepreneurship among others.

The first prototype started in Germany 2019 and is continuing since then. You are very welcome to join - check for details on Participating

ERASMUS+ activities


Erasmus+ is the European Union Programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad.

Since 2010 we conducted and participated in several ERASMUS K-1 and K-2 actions. There are current activities, you can join. We are also looking for partners from program countries and neighboring countries. Here some Examples:

Project Based Learning

Individuals or teams decide on creating a project. This can be offering an event or service, building an oven, a house or creating a product. This project will be looked at from all aspects such as ecological, economical, functional, sustainable and implemented as sustainable as possible. We will be co-developing and applying an individual and team centered Transformative Learning concept. The concept concentrates on Project- and Problem Based Learning, Learning and Research Journeys, System Dynamics, Systematic Innovation and Pattern Language. The learning themes are about personal, team and community development, healthy living, New Work and Economic Models. We will apply this learning process to the different learning, working and living environments within the UnaVillages and the UnaVision global communities. It also corresponds to our intention to create lifelong learning and the key competences for that. We like to foster with this special learning approach an important and lasting change with the UnaVillage inhabitants, participants and learning communities relating to all fields of life but especially finding passion and fields of work, which the people really, really like to do and by the same time sustaining their livelihood.

Learners start practically (Project Based Learning) by planning and doing tasks, by co-creating new products and services and by solving problems, determining the cause and effect relationships and identifying patterns and principles behind their insights. By working and communicating within a team, learners may receive critique of assumptions and can reflect in constructive dialogs their learnings, feelings, needs and desires and may reach, with help of the feedbacks and reflections, a higher level of understanding. This understanding and interest may lead the learner to start transformative researches. He or she will deepen his or her thoughts by asking critical questions, using systematic innovation and opening his or her mind for new solutions. We like to create a practical concept for this learning process, test it during the prototyping periods and prepare multipliers for the implementation and spread of these approaches within the UnaVision network and beyond.

Learning Journeys

Learning journeys for individuals and teams help to answer the question "What do I really, really like to do with my life?".  UnaVersity participants co-design their inner and outer learning journeys, identify some learning partners, mentors and expert to support them and start with suitable activities. As part of the learning journeys, people can participate in inspiring projects and programs and also participate intensive interaction with likeminded people within the Transformative Learning process in an UnaVillage region. Finding orientation that way, participants can design and prototype Eco-Social Entrepreneurships or join existing ones. Basically, we work with our 4-M philosophy:

  • Moving - to move with your body, thoughts and mind
  • Meeting - to meet and understand other people; lead profound dialogs and share ideas and experience
  • Making - co-create a sustainable future and implement eco-social innovations
  • Multiply - sharing experience, insights, knowledge and information openly. Use creative commons

Hiking Dialogs

Since many years we implemented hiking dialogs. The duration lasts from one day to several months. The idea is to concentrate on one topic and have an exchange of dialogs, meditations, ideas, concepts and thoughts. Hikes were conducted on four continents.
