Fields of action

What do we mean by areas of activity? Which ones have we chosen and why? What happens in eacharea of activity? Who are they aimed at? How can people get involved? What do they get out of it?

Berlin's volunteering scene is as diverse as its people. There are no limits to the richness of topics in the indi-vidual areas of engagement. Among the many great areas, let's take a closer look at some of them. Theseare large thematic areas that unite a lot of different and diverse commitment. We named these areas of activ-ity. That seemed fitting to us.

Berlin's commitment is as diverse as its people. There are no limits to the wealth of topics in volunteering.  Among the many great topics, let's take a closer look at some of them. These are large thematic areas that unite a lot of different and diverse commitment. We named them fields of action. That seemed fitting to us.  

Who thinks of a field in the middle of a big city? And yet there is one, right on our doorstep. Tempelhofer Feld, for example. A place with history, full of different developments, cool ideas and encounters with different people and lots of movement, in other words action. We like the fields Berlin offers and especially the following ones, which we are allowed to discover and accompany: 

  • Mental Health  
  • Digital Innovation for Engagement & Neighbourhood 
  • Climate Protection & Environment 
  • Education & Development
  • Migration & Participation
  • Open Source  
  • Sport

We all agree that there is more than these. So it's all the nicer that there is so much to discover in and around these fields of action. For example, democracy and participation, Europe, diversity and inclusion - to name just a few.  

We support our partners in the conception of the individual fields of action, help with events, workshops and formats. We look at needs, consider together how offers in the respective fields can be further developed and network actors with each other.  

One thing is particularly important to us: learning and exchanging. The wheel of engagement does not have to be reinvented. There are already a lot of good ideas out there. Let's collect them, bring them together and share them.  

Speaking of which: Insights on the individual fields of action, interviews, guest commentaries and more background knowledge can soon be found in our magazine section. We are curious, like to ask questions and seek answers from people who volunteer in these particular fields. And if you NOW feel the impulse to write something about the above-mentioned fields of action, please feel free to do so.  

Because we like it exciting and like to divide the journey of discovery well over the year, we will dedicate ourselves to the individual fields of action one by one. Let's go!
