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?
Is it for me?
Are you a dreamer, a disruptor, a doer, a weaver or a storyteller who cares deeply about the state of the world?
Are you a curious mind up for challenging traditional learning formats - and yourself - by joining an un // learning community? Are you fascinated by how our inner worlds relate to the outer world? Are you interested in different ways of thinking, being and doing - in decolonising our mindsets?
Do it to
Join a group of un // learners from multiple disciplines and backgrounds to pollinate ideas and collaborate on projects.
Develop your lifelong learning practice, boost your facilitation skills, your agency and impact.
Rewild yourself and combine cognitive learning with play, creativity and embodiment.

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 kick off with a weekend together in nature. Over 6 months, we then meet every other Monday evening in Berlin to tackle our individual questions and collective theme over three phases: Explore, Develop, Showcase. The fortnightly workshops are led by participants in turn and complemented by 'Power Up' sessions to report on our learning, and peer coaching sessions to keep us supported and on-track. We wrap up the journey with a public Showcase Event and celebrate with a Finish Line weekend.
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.
How much does it cost?
Cost ranges from 750€ -1650€ dependent on your circumstances and finances. There are also a small amount of 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.
Can we meet in real life during a pandemic?
Following the current prognosis, the COVID curve should have gone down by February 2021. So we’re optimistic about meeting in Berlin. Of course we cannot know for sure how the situation will evolve. In 2020, we have all learnt to adapt in accordance with the ever-evolving pandemic and started moving Learning Marathons online. We will thus remain flexible and always have the option to make meetings happen online should new restrictions come into effect.
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!
