Who is it for?

Project leaders and people responsible for hosting an event, workshop or program with participants external to your team or organisation

What’s included?

  • Support with conceptualisation and design 
  • Bringing in our own experiences and resources from the Living Library 
  • Optional add-on: facilitation or moderation

Duration

  • Depending on the length and complexity of your event or program, preparation usually starts 1-3 months in advance. 
  • Our support also includes a joint debrief 1-2 weeks after the event or program ends, to support learning and your capacity building.

Expected Outcome

Thinking of your event or program: What would make it successful from your perspective? What would make it a valuable experience for your participants? Which capacities and long-term effects do you strive to cultivate? 

Be it knowledge and information sharing, learning and capacity building, trust building and empowerment, or collaboration and joint action: With your intention and desired outcome in mind and heart, we provide guidance in the overall design process and contribute our knowledge and expertise. 

More specifically, we provide you with all the tools, session plans, additional content and good practices that you need for running the programs, workshops and events yourself – or we join you in their hosting and facilitation.

Our Approach

You bring valuable content, expertise and intentions that serve as seeds and inspirations to others. We support you in setting up the greenhouse that is necessary to sprout and grow them, in interactive learning experiences together with your participants. We are committed to making sure that these seeds find fertile ground by adding the necessary elements for cultivating trust, vulnerability, openness and many more qualities. ‍

We do this by:

  • Designing and facilitating learning formats of varying length and scope – such as single workshops or longer training programs – which combine expert input, peer learning, group reflection and action.
  • Supporting you in fine-tuning the agenda for conferences and public events, and working out the details, including briefing speakers, preparing exercises and guiding questions, setting up digital tools, and, if requested, facilitating or moderating sessions.
  • Providing session and exercise templates.
  • Holding debriefs and learning sessions with you to further develop formats and build in-house capacities.

We can also offer additional expertise by:

  • Providing input tailored around leadership and team collaboration. Learn more about our offers for Thriving Teams & Leaders here (add link)
  • Evaluating your learning formats to measure the impact both on individual participants and on the broader organisation or network, based on Regenerative Measurement & Evaluation (add link)

Through the very competent, constructive and creative support of Unity Effect, we were able to transfer a planned event in person with approx. 200 participants into the digital space within a very short time. Both the technical and the conceptual support made the event to be successful for us as organizers as well as for the participants. I would like to thank Unity Effect for the great and trustful cooperation and support!

In very challenging times, the global project on Reducing Inequalities Worldwide had to change its implementation logic from ‘on the ground’ to ‘digital only’. Together with Unity Effect, we were able to develop several meaningful and results-oriented digital formats. This collaboration enabled us to avoid various pitfalls and deliver the project as planned, and to explore how to strategically integrate online formats into our work.

Our first digital NachhaltigkeitsCamp Bonn was an experiment for us. Unity Effect was a strong partner during our learning journey. Their mindful approach to groups, the many fresh ideas to work and interact with the participants, and the support during the event, contributed to a successful NachhaltigkeitsCamp. And granted us many happy faces.

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.
