Lernlabor is a Berlin-based social business with charitable status

We create innovative educational, cultural and artistic projects.
Through our local and international activities we foster creativity, (inter)cultural exchange and lifelong learning.

Lernlabor has
three main areas of focus

Youth Participation

We provide young people with the skills, tools and support structures to strengthen their active citizenship and participation in democratic life.
We run local and international projects, co-designed by young people, that engage with issues that are relevant to youth.

Outdoor Education

From our local climbing projects in Berlin, to international expeditions in Norway, Spain and Ukraine, Outdoor Education is one of our core activities.
We train outdoor leaders and cooperate with professional outdoor educators and guides to offer a wide of activities for all levels of experience, ranging from novice to advanced.

Art & Culture

We organise local and international residencies for emerging artists in addition to training courses for youth workers and educators focusing on art and culture as a tool for non-formal education and youth work.

Our goal is for these three areas to complement each other synergistically through forging connections between grassroots initiatives at the local level, educational cooperation at the international level, and the sphere of policymaking.

We are so happy to share images of our latest collective journey “Harvesting Hope: Artistic Alchemy and Collective Care for Eco-Social Renewal” that took place in the unique setting of Lutter am Barrengerge, Germany between March 15th to 24th, 2024.

This project focused on the dynamic intersection of Art, Alchemy, and collective Care, drawing inspiration from ancestral and alternative practices while envisioning future scenarios of eco-social renewal.

Participants had the opportunity to explore these topics while actively participating in the alchemical process of artistic creation. Through hands-on collaborative artistic methods, we explored and interacted with Nature, reflecting on the ongoing eco-social crisis to propose new questions and explore other forms of engagement in connection to topics like sustainability, climate change, extractivism, etc.

The collective path was designed as a (co)habiting experience where a program was integrated with reflective transdisciplinary activities on how to shift on present and future scenarios, spaces of creation such as “how to become more ecosystems” or participatory frames for collective creations such the creation of tarot cards based on the eco-social crisis, reflections on post-truth (news) narratives, collective sound and painting creations as well as other artistic experiments taking place outdoors in the natural surroundings. This immersive collaborative path enabled the final creation of collaborative processes experienced by all participants.

The project was designed by Seila Fernández Arconada as a hybrid format, blending elements of a training course and an experimental artistic laboratory.

Thanks to our partners: Logos Moon10 productions La Ortiga Colectiva Progetto Giovani Padova for sending such unique and motivated participants.

Gratitude extends to everyone who contributed to this exceptional and deeply meaningful journey, where hope blossomed from our collective unity and the constellation of synergies, that continue to expand and will keep growing in the future, thank you to all.

Last Call for German based participantsCALL FOR GERMAN BASED PARTICIPANTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL YOUTH EXCHANGE IN RATHEN, GERMANY (13.04.2024-26.04.2024)

Project description:
Back To Nature 3.0 is an international youth exchange for a program country that aims to increase the connection between young people and nature. For many youngsters, everyday stress and online news are overwhelming and result in a negative effect on their well-being. We think that spending time in nature can help us to “charge our batteries” and find inspiration for our lives. Being outdoors can help to achieve inner harmony lead to self-discovery and generally contribute to well-being and a balanced lifestyle. Appreciating nature fosters a deeper understanding of the importance of environmentally sustainable and green Europe, promoting both individual and environmental well-being. The gained knowledge will help us to act as agents of change for environmental and sustainable development.

The project will introduce young participants to a region of Germany that stands out for its natural beauty and ecological diversity. During the process, participants will explore the local environment and each others' cultures in an outdoor setting. At the youth exchange participants will have the opportunity to discuss environmental issues on the local and international levels, do hikes, take part in workshops, meet locals, and organize the open day for the community.

Project objectives:
- To foster a connection between young people and nature and equip participants with practical skills for being outdoors.
- To raise awareness about environmental issues and the importance of sustainable living practices, inspiring participants to become advocates for positive change and living a more sustainable lifestyle.
- To encourage self-discovery and personal development through outdoor experiences, workshops, and discussions on topics related to well-being and sustainability, stepping outside of their comfort zone and exploring new ways.
- To facilitate cross-cultural understanding and appreciation among participants by exploring each other's backgrounds and traditions.

Accommodation, food, and travel costs will be fully covered by the Erasmus+ program.

Participation fee: €20

Last Call for German based participants
1 month ago

INTER(RELATION) PATH is an international project focusing on artistic research as a tool for creating an inclusive society. This exchange explores the topic of migration as a means of creation to promote social inclusion and intercultural dialogue.

The three selected artists from an international call are Noelia A. Ferreira (Spain), Kamil Druk (Poland) and Jannik Trapp (Germany).

The Study Visit organised by Lernlabor took place from 28th of February to 2nd of March in Berlin. During this time, we focused on learning about the topic of migration from embodied experiences we all have to conceptual geopolitical reflections. We began learning from all participants both artists and organisers mapping connections between us and migration.

Thanks to Mohamad from Refugee Voices Tour, we had a simulation workshop imagining a hypothetical future Europe where it sees the rise of radical political parties in most of Europe.

As well, we had a day visiting exhibitions connected to the topic where we learnt from local context to international perspectives created by migrant communities. This included the exhibition “We call it Revolution. Transnational Activism in Berlin” at the FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum, “Between Bridges” by the Kyiv Perennial program part of the 5th Kyiv Biennial, the Documentation Centre for Displacement, Expulsion, Reconciliation and the opening exhibition “Echoes of the Brother Countries” at Haus der Kulturen der Welt.

This ground for collective reflection is the first stage of this project which will continue with a residency in Spain and a final exhibition in Poland.

This Study visit has been facilitated by Seila Fernández Arconada.

INTER(RELATION) PATH is carried out by the lead organisation: Creando por Soria (Spain) with partners: Lernlabor(Germany) and Logos (Poland). Project financed by the European Union.

Earlier in January, we were so pleased to run the winter collective space “Seeds in the Snow: Winter Artistic Collaborations for a Shared Future” in Nigüelas (Granada, Spain). This project was created to cultivate togetherness through artistic explorations in Nature as a gesture of stewardship for a shared future.

During five-days artists, scientists, youth workers and civil society activists explored the tangled threads of the ecosocial crisis through collective learning inspired by socially engaged art practices. Through hands-on transdisciplinary methods, reflective dialogues and shared rural experiences, we look for artistic “natural” connections between different kinds of knowledge while experiencing togetherness.

During the time together we explored the uncertainties of the contemporary landscapes reflecting on the uncertain times we are living while rethinking about sustainability, climate change, collaboration and Nature among others. From the led presentations and discussions, to activities in the mountains and the local science museum (Parque de las Ciencias de Andalucía) while having local experts like Félix Picazo who shared with us a great lesson about ecology by collaborating with Nature. Also, these five days allowed an immersive (co)habiting experience as we lived together at the Molino while all the exchanged was taking place (listening, talking, drawing, hiking, reading, playing, watching, laughing, thinking, creating… and loads more).

As result, all participants created projects in collaboration to take further ideas and experiment on methodologies for all to experience. In addition, the process became an outcome collected in an “experimental tool guide”, a collective book created out of this project, soon will be published online!

This space was created by Seila Fernández Arconada together with Lernlabor team and the special professional guests as seeds in the snow, participating in this artistic endeavour together.

Thanks to all who made such special project possible as well as to our funders @jugend_fuer_europa for making such experiences possible.

This project was co-funded by the European Union 🇪🇺

What a way to start the year! In January we held our Erasmus+ Training Course “Expedition Skills for Outdoor Education” in the beautiful surroundings of the Sierra Nevada.

Under the guidance of our inspiring trainer Rocio Monteoliva Herrera we provided youth workers from Germany, Spain, Greece and Poland with the necessary technical as well as pedagogical skills to plan and implement expeditions in high mountain terrain, ensuring that the Outdoor Education approach can be used to its full potential within the framework of European Youth Work and non-formal education.

Following three days of workshops on snow conditions, avalanche safety, risk assessment and navigation, we completed a winter traverse of the highest peaks of the Sierra Nevada, biwaking at over 3000 meters in the Refugio de la Caldera before summing Mulhacen (3482 meters), the highest mountain on the Iberian peninsula.

The main activities of the training included:
- Walking on snow and firn
- Ice-axe and crampon techniques
- Self-arrest training
- Improvised harness and self-belay techniques
- Snow conditions and avalanche awareness
- Avalanche Assessment Process & Reduction Method
- Avalanche rescue: beacons, probing and digging
- Navigation and leading in high alpine terrain
- Munter 3x3 risk assessment matrix
- Expedition planning
- Experiential Education Reflection frame: what, so what, now what
- Youthpass workshop
- Follow-up activity development

Thanks to our great trainers and our fantastic hosts as well as to our funders JUGEND für Europa for making such experiences possible.
