A peer-to-peer Learning Marathon for those who want to create a life-sustaining future.
Online & Berlin (offline)
4 hours per wk
A six month un // learning journey of deep enquiry, mutual support and co-creation. Together we shift prevailing mindsets and create the more beautiful future we know is possible.
In these tumultuous times, this Learning Marathon connects you to a dozen curious and caring humans. Each holds their own question weaving into our common enquiry: What must we unlearn and remember to create a thriving future for all? How can we rewild ourselves, our communities, our planet?

How do you approach diversity and inclusion?
We believe that placing peer-to-peer relationships at the heart of learning creates huge potential for a more inclusive approach to education. We also know that a very deliberate effort is required to deliver those benefits in reality. A top cited value point for Enrol Yourself participants is that they learnt alongside people they wouldn't otherwise have met and were able to exchange their perspectives, ideas, experiences and more.
We want to welcome and support anyone with a strong intention to take part in our programmes, and aim to ensure that your identity or background will not be a barrier. Whilst we don't have it all figured out yet, we are working on it.
What does the programme look like?
We start the journey with a kick off weekend. Over 6 months, we meet every other Monday evening online to tackle our individual questions and collective theme. These workshops are led by participants in turn and complemented by peer coaching sessions every other week to keep us supported and on-track. The journey is punctuated by 2 'Power Up' sessions in which we report back and receive input on our progress and culminates with a public Showcase Event and a Finish Line weekend celebration.
How will the blended online/in person work in practice?
It is impossible at this stage to know what COVID restrictions will be in place over the 6 months. We hope to hold the major milestone events (kick off & finish line weekend, power ups & showcase) in Berlin & surroundings. We will aim to remain fluid and adaptive in response to the changing situation, as well as participant’s personal circumstances.Any in-person events will observe covid 19 regulations so we can be responsible for ourselves, each other, & everyone around us.
How much does it cost?
Cost ranges from 650€ -1550€ dependent on your circumstances and finances. There are also a small amount of fully funded bursaries available, please reach out if you need support. If you are able, we encourage you to contribute to our higher tier. This makes it possible to offer these lower cost places to those with less income and makes it possible for you to learn as part of a more diverse group.
What does the application process look like?
The application process is simple. You can download more information at the bottom of this page, and feel free to reach out to Carolin for an informal chat. If this feels like something that calls you then you can sign up via the application form. After the deadline Carolin will find a time to speak with you, before offering a limited number of places.
Why is this Berlin-based programme in English?
With Berlin being such an international melting pot, Carolin chose English as the common language for this journey. You do not have to be a native English speaker to take part and we encourage local German speakers as well as people with any other native tongue to apply. You may want to conduct your research or start a project in a different language than English, that’s very welcome!
