# 1: People want to participate at events I experience there is a strong need to provide many more opportunities for people to truly participate at events – besides listening to keynotes and panel discussions. At #initiate19 on June 7th in Zürich, we create learning and working formats that put individual participation at the center.
# 2: People want to use social media I like to learn using social media such as blogs, Twitter and LinkedIn. To me, learning via social media represents active, informal learning which Martin Geisenhainer touches upon in this blog posting.
# 3: People want to create their own learning Reading the book “Endlich frei” by Daniel Greenberg, I learned more about the power of strengthening personal initiative. On pages 38-40, for example, I read that children learn when they are ready to learn. When children are curious, they make an effort. Related to this, I read in this posting by Christoph Schmitt that today, people increasingly create their own learning. We are actors rather than spectators of our own education.
When you take on the challenge of acquiring a Christmas tree, perhaps you may – besides thinking about buying or renting a Christmas tree – also consider making your Christmas tree yourself. I experienced that creating a Christmas tree yourself has more advantages. For example, it is cheaper. Also, by choosing this do-it-yourself option, you get the opportunity to practice creative thinking. Here is some inspiration for you:
Fantastic experience watching the sunrise at Saksild in Denmark. I was here with my girlfriend and my mother. As we took a walk around this beautiful area, we did a flashback to the 1960s, when my parents built a summer house not far from this place.
The air here was very fresh, and the sound of the waves as well as the view of the sun rising had a meditative effect on me. I felt energy coming up through my legs through my stomach and breast and up to my head.
Bei einem Gottesdienst am letzten Sonntag in Zürich haben Alle das Lied “Hevenu Shalom Alehem” gesungen. Das Lied selber bringt eine schöne, fröhliche Stimmung in den Raum, habe ich erfahren. Besonders dynamisch wurde es, als beinahe Alle, die beim Gottesdienst teilnahmen, während des Liedes aufstanden und durch die Reihen miteinander spazierten / tanzten. Ich kann nicht erinnern, dass ich das früher erlebt habe. Schön war es, und passend dazu sagte die Pfarrerin gleich nach dem Lied: “Die Kirche ist in Bewegung.”
