Impact Lab #2 – September 2019



→ You’re working on an idea that makes our world a better place? You’re in need of support, opinions, criticism? You’re missing know-how and people to implement it? Take the chance and register here as an initiator! Let’s work together and take your project forward!

Although you don’t have a tangible idea or plan for action yet, your beliefs are pushing you to take a step forward, fight for change, make a difference? You have skills that you want to use for that? Giving constructive and honest feedback is your thing? Then register here for free and support projects making an impact!

Selection of ideas

At our Impact Lab, we’ll select together the ideas that we’ll work on collectively for a whole afternoon.

Idea and project forge

These ideas are then discussed, optimized and expanded under the guidance of a professional coach (Daniel Wahrenberger), each of them eventually resulting in a realistic and detailed project concept. Each participant contributes actively, gives feedback and impulses. Invited experts from various fields will enrich the process with their knowledge and practical experience.


The elaborated project concepts are presented. Project teams, networks and friendships have formed during the collaboration.

Further support from the association and its partners

The project concepts emerging from  the collective intelligence of this community will then be accompanied by our association Forward Thinking Berlin e.V. in further steps. We offer the initiators our network and help them establish contact with foundations, organisations and decision makers. Individual coaching is offered by our partners Project Together, Die Neuen. Rethink, Personal Identity, Thaler/Rehor.

In order to support the creative process and networking, we offer:
Motivation through talks: “From a small idea to a big impact”

Catering with snacks and drinks from our partners
Fun with drinks and music rounding up the event
