With the implementation of their vision, the project Silence Space attempts to give Silence a home in the public space in order to make it heard. These consumption & technique free Spaces serve to remind on the potential, everybody carries inside - to discover the intrinsic motivation of living a sustainable life & to empower us to initiate the change that is needed today. The implementation of the Silence Spaces is carried out by the collective Schleiereule – like the silent barn owl, we as well try to bring Silence into the world. Our work benefits from various (academic) backgrounds, practices & interests from political, social and economic sciences, as well as philosophy, arts, ecology, global change management, healing, mindfulness & meditation practices.

The Pomeranian Farm Community (Höfegemeinschaft Pommern HGP), is an association of five organic farms, promoting organic farming in the region. The central element around which everything revolves is the field. More precisely: the global field.

2000 m², which are available to each of us in the world in purely mathematical terms for the production of our food. In Rothenklempenow everyone can see how much land in the world is needed to grow what kind of food. 

"Agriculture of the future is more than just business with land. Agriculture is the opportunity to connect to new leadership out of nature."

To make the transformation a little faster, the former actor from Düsseldorf & today's passionate changemaker has come up with something new: residenZ - time for future. Three people will be given the opportunity to rethink & try out the nutrition & agriculture of tomorrow in an interdisciplinary, creative and research-oriented way.

GÖTZ LEHMANN

Project manager MODEM, Arbeit und Leben e.V. Mecklenburg – Vorpommern

What leadership questions are we asking in rural area & should be asking in cities? 

MODEM IS a model project for rural areas in the district of Vorpommern-Greifswald. We are dealing with civil society in a changing region. We are looking for new formats & cooperation for a life beyond the cities. We are looking for a new relationship between city and country.

Civil society engagement can only develop, where provision of general interest is guaranteed. How can the conditions be created for this? In rural areas social issues, education, employment and culture are not perceived separately. How can the balance be lived to ensure a stable civil society?

When local sensitivities affect global effects, we need a functioning civil society.
