Our Approach

We design and facilitate workshops and trainings with a focus on creating interactive, engaging and participatory learning experiences.

We work together with you to develop and implement formats around your topics and themes, including learning journeys, peer exchange formats, capacity building programs and workshops. We work both within organisations, as well as across organisations and networks. We also offer evaluation to measure capacity development and the impact of your programs.
Read on below to learn about our past projects. 

We facilitate both in person (in Germany and surrounding regions) and online (worldwide). We work in English, German and Spanish. To learn about pricing and how we can support your work, please contact us.

The Kofi Annan Foundation enjoyed collaborating with Unity Effect for its Kofi Annan Changemakers initiative and greatly benefited from Emily’s facilitation skills and caring attitude. She brought innovative formats while preserving the core spirit of the initiative and was friendly and collaborative throughout the planning and delivery of the programme. On request of the organizing team, Unity Effect also conducted an impact evaluation of the programme, providing valuable information and suggestions that will further support the initiative’s growth and positive impact on its young changemakers.

Peer learning in organisations & networks

Within every group there is a wealth of knowledge, lived experience and diverse perspectives to share with each other. Peer learning is an approach that enables us to tap into this collective wisdom, to learn from and with each other. It can strengthen collaboration, facilitate effective problem solving, support shared leadership and enable continuous learning which is crucial to adapt and thrive in a complex world. 

Yet to work effectively, peer-learning needs guidance and structure. We support you to design intentional formats and processes, and enable you to foster ownership in your peer learning group, team and organisation.
